Simón del desierto

Luis Buñuel Mexico, 1965

ramosbarajas's rating of the film Simon of the Desert

Perfectly irreverent. Much like Nazarin, Simon tries his best to be as Christ-like as possible without any results. It's Buñuel's way of saying those actions can only be considered obsolete. The ending is great for its nonsensical approach; you can't possibly expect it, but it's so absurd it fits. This is probably the funnest role I've seen Pinal in. Now off to watch her other comedies and musicals.
