Death of a Bureaucrat
246 Ratings


A young man attempts to fight the system in an entertaining account of bureaucracy amok and the tyranny of red tape.

Our take

The great Cuban director Tomás Gutiérrez Alea satirizes the folly of post-revolutionary Cuban bureaucracy in hilarious and Kafka-esque fashion. With his typically absurd and slapstick style, Alea plays on earlier cinematic conventions, putting forward a bold and radical new vision for Cuban cinema.
