    Un Bunuel mexicain fort plaisant et bienvenu. On est ravi de la ballade... www.cinefiches.com

  2. zondabez's rating of the film Illusion Travels by Streetcar

    O bonde aqui é outro, diferente daquele que nos apresenta Blanche DuBois em "Um bonde chamado desejo" (51). Rodado no México em 54, "A ilusão viaja de bonde" é um trabalho do ciclo mexicano de Luis Buñuel - muito mais 'puxado' para o realismo do que para as produções surreais da fase posterior. Já está lá a crítica social, o humor, o inesperado das situações características de vários de seus filmes.

  3. Greg S.'s rating of the film Illusion Travels by Streetcar

    The sequence where the characters put on the play might be my favorite in any of his films, the play's production values are easy to laugh at but Bunuel makes this segment incredibly human and intimate where fake birds on strings have more significance than a statue of Christ. The streetcar as a device that intercepts all these little conflicts, brings the harmonious description in the v/o to life . Underrated.

  4. Coheed 2.5's rating of the film Illusion Travels by Streetcar

    Having seen this and The Exterminating Angels, Bunuel's Mexican films may be the ones where I finally appreciate him as a director.
