Arrabal's second film, I WILL WALK LIKE A CRAZY HORSE (aka. J'IRAI COMME UN CHEVAL FOU) forsakes the political allegory present in VIVA LA MUERTE! for a dramatic discovery of faith and rejection of organized religion. The story follows a man, Aden, played by the American George Shannon, who flees society after the death of his controlling mother. Out in the wilderness he encounters the beauty of nature, and under the tutelage of a hermit named Marvel, becomes a "normal homme." Aden falls desperately in love with Marvel, who can communicate with animals, the clouds and the sun. Upon returning to civilization, Marvel in tow, Aden is more aware than ever of the hideous and hypocritical nature of human society. I WILL WALK LIKE A CRAZY HORSE has long been considered a masterpiece of surrealist film and stands as Arrabal's most delirious and devilish picture, an outrageous portrait of both other-worldly beauty and inner torment.

no beautiful cinematography can hide unjustified misogyny

Freudian, sarcastic and mythological, all in one.
