  1. Lorena Saucedo's rating of the film Death of a Bureaucrat

    Kafka in the tropics. Doesn't the lead actor remind you of someone?

  2. ricardo bonilla's rating of the film Death of a Bureaucrat

    A más de 50 años de distancia la burocracia sigue haciendo de las suyas.

  3. jorge's rating of the film Death of a Bureaucrat

    7/10 Bastante divertida, aunque un humor mas de tipo intelectual.

  4. Dada Kubin's rating of the film Death of a Bureaucrat

    An inventive comedy with loads of references to movie greats, be it Harold Lloyd or Luis Buñuel (and Paco’s machine in the beginning could have been from Terry Gilliam). Again, a comedy that wasn’t as funny as I hoped but this one had all sorts of of gimmicks and details to keep up the interest when the story itself wasn’t enough to carry the film.

  5. Illusion Travels By Streetcar's rating of the film Death of a Bureaucrat

    "This film is definitely utilizing elements - source material - that isn't too different from what Hollywood would be mining." http://illusionpodcast.blogspot.com/2014/10/episode-34-tomas-gutierrez-aleas.html

  6. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Death of a Bureaucrat

    Comedia satírica cubana elemental. "La muerte de un burócrata" es más el padecimiento de un individuo presa de la burocracia misma. Gutiérrez Alea tiene una amplia imaginación al momento de recrear toda esa larga cadena de situaciones que son consecuencia de un solo protocolo público. El filme tiene de surrealista, gags, stop motion. Tiene el espíritu absurdo y libre que se contempla en la fascinante batalla campal.

  9. εξώτερο Διάστημα's rating of the film Death of a Bureaucrat

    death of a bourreaucrat (the French for 'executioner'). as a citizen of a completely nutsy, urbanazi, non-cuban post-commie burreaucracy, my next nickname on mubi will be răpciune la bourelle. labour'elle, the proletarian equivalent of florence nightingale.

  10. Max Kazaam Wilde's rating of the film Death of a Bureaucrat

    I'm going to go ahead and rate this movie even though I slept through about 15 minutes in the middle. I drank two cups of coffee before watching. two. Science argues that it was physically impossible for me to fall asleep but Death Of A Bureaucrat took the challenge head on by making an 85 minute movie feel like 4 four hour movie. They skimped out on great jokes and gave me no desire to want to know what happens next

  11. Harry Rossi's rating of the film Death of a Bureaucrat

    About as much fun as having paperwork signed. But yeah it was fine. A good effort with one or two laughs but this really didn't add up to anything. Got really boring really fast.

  12. rrrno's rating of the film Death of a Bureaucrat

    Me recordo mucho a Fellini

  13. VENIMOS LOS JODIMOS Y NOS FUIMOS's rating of the film Death of a Bureaucrat

    Tan ferozmente critica como divertida, plena de imagenes y situaciones a medio camino entre el humor negro mas despiadado y el surrealismo en pleno, esta delirante cinta de Gutierrez Alea se ha convertido en una obra clave del cine cubano post-revolucionario, en la que el director, ademas, rinde homenaje a cineastas de la talla de Buñuel, Kurosawa, Bergman...todo un clasico del cine latinoamericano de los 60.
