Simón del desierto

Luis Buñuel Mexico, 1965

Duncan Gray's rating of the film Simon of the Desert

I'm kind of glad this Bunuel film was cut short; I can't imagine it sustaining its premise for a whole film, and the rushed, tacked on ending is actually the most interesting part. Excellent if you're looking for Cinema under an hour...let the record show that sometimes production woes inspire the best results. An interesting corner of Bunuel's work.
