There's no sport where the athlete leaves the stage to receive surgery & 45 min later continues to risk his life victoriously. This champ is El FANDI, one aim: 100 bullfights, 200 bulls/year. Il n'y a pas de sport ou l'athlète quitte la piste pour recevoir une intervention chirurgicale & 45 minutes plus tard remet sa vie en danger victorieusement. Ce champion c'est El FANDI, 1 objectif: 100 corridas, 200 taureaux/an.
Why Mubi? Why did you select a doc about the glorification of animal cruelty? And why did you decide to show it to Spanish audiences?–we know enough about it. Are you aware that this is a controversial topic at the moment in Spain? For example, in Catalonia there was a referendum against bullfighting and it was overturned by a tribunal.Your text says: "heroic","pantheon of Spain’s greatest bullfighters" – how cheap!
Heart-rending documentary into the journey of a Matador (and implicitly, into the sad destiny of Tauruses). I believe this will be poignant and provocative even for those neutral about this polemic. I have admiration for the VIP access granted to Higgins & Seavey. Seems to show that the Bullfighting circuit is open to discussing their place in modern-day values.
