Arruza Directed by Budd Boetticher

Critics reviews

I admit to detesting bullfighting and was repulsed by Arruza’s many moments of hapless bulls and the indignity of their exploitation. And no, I cannot countenance the bullshit of the bulls being treated with respect and applauded for their bravery. However, although I had to resist averting my eyes, Arruza’s bullfighting sequences do capture some remarkable moments of animal and man together in the ring.
