The Exterminating Angel

El ángel exterminador

Directed by Luis Buñuel
Mexico, 1962
Comedy, Drama, Fantasy


A formal dinner party starts out normally enough. After the bourgeois group retire to the host’s music room, they inexplicably find themselves unable to leave. Hours pass and then days, and as the time plods by, disturbing changes in the formerly-genteel guests occur.
