Exterminating Angel, The* (El Angel Exterminador)

  • 1962 ----- b & w ----- 91 min ----- vhs
  • (Directed and written by Luis Bunuel; with Silvia Pinal, Enrique Rambal, Lucy Gallardo, Claudio Brook) Guests at a high society dinner party find it absolutely impossible to go home. The dinner guests' inexplicably extended sojourn becomes the occasion for a series of anecdotes which bring sex, death and the anarchy of physical need to the forefront. Like the characters, the audience is forced to see some elemental realities in ways that disturb taboos as well as conventional points of view.
