Video delivers. Through his use of c inéma vérité, the Spanish plumber-turned-film artist deconstructs the grand narrative of western purity and exposes the vile sewer lurking beneath the western world-historical soul.



For those interested in the screenwriter's art, I have managed to obtain a transcription of the monologue for this film:


This is genuinely fascinating. I feel a paradigm shift in European philosophy.

Thank you for fixing up the text.

The most poignant part in the monologue is the sentence, "Let the feces rain." Our narrator encourages the feces to 'rain' down on himself and on us, the viewers, so that we may revel in it, be disgusted by it. But ultimately the call is for us to experience our own demise in the most visceral way.

It may also be a subtle suggestion for the feces to 'reign' over us. Rather than controlling our excreta and the myriad systems we have developed to send it away and cleanse ourselves of it, we are in fact controlled by it. How many of you can truly say that you know how to (and are willing to) unclog toilets? It is only the heroic plumber that can save us and purify the waters once again.
