PATUCHAS, EL HOMBRE DE LOS MIL LIMONES

PATUCHAS, EL HOMBRE DE LOS MIL LIMONES

Asbel Esteve

Asbel Esteve | Spain | 2014 | 68 min. | V.O. Spanish

Sooner rather than later, the cinema had to turn its eyes to Juan Antonio Castillo, a.k.a Patauchas, a.k.a. Juan Antonio Canta. Perhaps no one represents as he does the legend of the artist drowned by success in the Spanish music context of the end of the 20th century. Only the few people who knew him well, his fellow travelers (excellent images of trains crisscross the first part of the documentary) from his beginnings as a vocalist for Pabellón Psiquiátrico or his friends at RESAD are authorized to act as guides in this very dignified approach to a boundless character. And we will discover that his story isn’t so much that cliché of a toy broken by fatality or abuse, but that of a recognizable human being swallowed up by show business society. “I wanted to make music, not juice”, was how he summarized it very graphically.
