Álex de la Iglesia
Alejandro "Álex" de la Iglesia Mendoza is a Spanish film director, screenwriter and former comic book artist. De la Iglesia's films combines grotesque and dark elements such as death and murder: most of his work is considered dark comedies, but are often considered to have horror and/or drama elements. All his films, with the notable exceptions of The Last Circus and As Luck Would Have It, were written together with Jorge Guerricaechevarría. Álex de la Iglesia was born in Bilbao, Spain, in 1965. He is a philosophy graduate of the University of Deusto who ended up working in the comic book field at a young age, he had a brief stint in television before finding work as production designer on Pablo Berger's Mamá. This little seen short film focuses on a family forced to live in a basement after a nuclear war and features a little boy who wears a Batman costume. Enrique Urbizu came calling for his production designer services in 1991 for Todo por la pasta, a Basque crime thriller, nominated for 4 Goya Awards, won 1.
He met José Guerricaechevarria and together they made the short film, Mirindas Asesinas, in which a boring man, whose mind is degenerating, is on the verge of becoming a psychotic killer. The two men became fast friends and have worked together since, with José writing the screenplays to many of De La Iglesia's films. In 1993 De La Iglesia received a big break when Spain's most famous director, Pedro Almodóvar, produced his debut feature Accion mutante; this tale of a group of crippled and handicapped outcasts in the future taking arms against handsome oppressors, became an independent success globally. The next step he took was El día de la Bestia, it won the Best Director award amongst them. It marked his first collaboration with producer Andrés Vicente Gómez. Wanting to build on the success of The Day Of The Beast, Gómez hired Iglesia to direct Perdita Durango based on novelist Barry Gifford's 59 Degrees and Raining. Barry Gifford helped out on the script also. Isabella Rossellini played Perdita Durango in David Lynch's Wild At Heart based on a Gifford work.
The film did not prove as great a success as hoped. The film was more nasty in its violence, its confrontational style, resulted in cuts and running times around the globe varying from 95 minutes in South Korea to 126 minutes in Spain, it was rumoured Bigas Luna was offered the directors chair for the film. In 1997, Iglesia wrote Payasos en la lavadora, a satirical novel. Back in Spain, in 1999 de la Iglesia had success with Dying of Laughter a dark comedy about a Martin & Lewis style comic duo with no love for each other, nominated for 3 Goyas, winning 2. La Comunidad, a dark comedy/thriller set in an apartment block with a money scamble, got 15 Goya nominations, won 3. 800 Bullets, a homage to spaghetti westerns, got 4 Goya nominations, 1 win. And Crimen ferpecto, a dark comedy thriller with a man aspiring to perfection, winning 6 Goya prizes as a result. All these films have the recipe of dark humour, selfish aspirational characters, sexy situations. De la Iglesia himself provided the voice of The Underminer in the Spanish language dubbing of The Incredibles.
In 2006 he directed an episode of the TV series Películas para no dormir titled The Baby's Room. In 2008, de la Iglesia directed the science-fiction comedy TV series Plutón B. R. B. Nero, he has directed Elijah Wood and John Hurt in The Oxford Murders, his second movie in English, released in Spain in January 2008.
