ME:  I have seen Santa Sangre, but this was by Raul Ruiz, a postmodern
melange of business, mutation, saints, and people frozen in time.  The
name was mundane and non-descriptive, which is why I can't recall it.
Other suggestions out there?  (It was a better movie than The Golden
Boat, which New York chose for its festival that year because it was set
in New York.)
