Goya Gothic

Goya Gothic

2 Episodes

The macabre visual imagination of Spanish painter Francisco Goya provides the inspiration for two disturbing journeys into the nightmare realm. First, Jonathan Glazer takes viewers down a deep, dark, dizzying well in THE FALL, a frighteningly surreal vision of fascistic violence that was influenced in part by Goya’s gothic print “The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters.” Goya’s work—particularly the famously disturbing painting “Saturn Devouring His Son”—was also a key visual reference for Guillermo del Toro in the creation of his audacious feature debut, CRONOS, a captivating vampire fable that introduced the world to the director’s sinister fairy-tale sensibility.
