  • The Queen of Spain review – Cruz control: regal method in the madness. But from the start the production has problems: Macarena has the hots for a cute guy on the crew, necessitating farcical trips with him back to her dressing room, and the director, a John Ford-ish guy with an eyepatch, keeps falling asleep.
