The Exterminating Angel
(dir. Luis Buñuel, 1962, Mexico), 95 mins.
In Bunuel’s surreal, existential black comedy, guests at a lavish, bourgeois dinner party find themselves inexplicably unable to leave at the end of the evening. As days pass, the hypocrisies and facades of their social status are exposed.
SATIRE. BLACK COMEDY.
