On Exploder Button: Manchas de sangre en un coche nuevo (1975)

aka Blood Stains in a New Car

This psychological thriller by Antonio Mercero looks to me like an obvious fable about the morals (or lack of) the bourgeoisie in late Franco Spain. It's - not surprisingly - a film about a rich man who prefers to look away from certain unpleasant things but then has to realize that he's not quite the hardened manly bastard he likes to pretend to be.

Read more about Manchas de Sangre over in my column at Exploder Button.
