  2. Stefan Stefan's rating of the film The Exterminating Angel

  3. Ark V's rating of the film The Exterminating Angel

    This could have been a fascinating study of the rich being reliant on the working classes. It ended up as a bunch of less than attractive characters spiked on dodgy mushrooms and losing the plot.

  4. Amanda Violetto's rating of the film The Exterminating Angel

    surrealist satire at its best

  5. tintinmugshot's rating of the film The Exterminating Angel

    Another example of Bunuel criticizing the church, the institutions and the society's delirations when where're in total despair. Can't be last than five.

  6. Superfrog's rating of the film The Exterminating Angel

    But why are they staying in? A take of what happens when you get trapped doing the proper thing even though it is obvious that it is not the right thing.

  7. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film The Exterminating Angel

    A wonderful, surreal comedy that turns a polite social engagement into a housebound drama that veers quite close to "Lord Of The Flies". Intriguing, amusing, and delightfully scabrous.

  8. SiIencio's rating of the film The Exterminating Angel

    Buñuel again irreverently snipping at the conservative bourgeoisie, lost in their own bubble, and the connivance of the catholic church. With touches of surrealism and symbolic notes Buñuel crafts a pretty austere and entertaining quasi-comedy that finds no trouble in pulling a smirk.

  9. P D Dawson's rating of the film The Exterminating Angel

    Buñuel plays with the incredibly improbable and inexplicable case of people not being able to enter or leave a room after a party. What is so amazing is the brilliant way in which Buñuel manages to sell the idea without ever stepping into absurdity, even though the idea itself is quite absurd. And using this situation we are able to see the people pushed to their limits.

  12. Christofi Cotonou's rating of the film The Exterminating Angel

    As the modern world reflects on the rich/poor divide by widening it like a sink hole, this film manages to (not so subtly) show us that, hey - none of this shabang is new.

  13. bogdann's rating of the film The Exterminating Angel

    i think this would require a second viewing, but it's very good.

  14. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Exterminating Angel

    This is such a pure form of surrealism and absurdity. Luis Bunuel was asked by Warner Brothers to work on a story that eventually was filmed as The Beast with Five Fingers (1946). 'The Exterminating Angel' contains many of the elements of the earlier film including the large mansion, piano recital, and stabbing of a disembodied hand."

  15. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film The Exterminating Angel

    3-4. An astonishing, minimal fantasy about a group of bourgeoise individuals trapped by their own garden of Eden, inverted here as a place that brings the rich back to God and their humanity by making them aware of filth, violence, death, etc. It then makes the bold choice of extending this critique of class to the church itself and the churchgoers. Plus, dat animal symbolism. ^_^

  16. FISCHER's rating of the film The Exterminating Angel

    Une violente et séduisante allégorie sur la décadence du monde et des valeurs bourgeoises, qui sera relayée, élargie, dans l'épilogue sacrée de l'oeuvre, par une évidente contamination des instances religieuses qui vont elles aussi se retrouver "séquestrées" dans une église avec leurs fidèles, alors que des émeutes éclatent spontanément dans les rues et les quartiers. www.cinefiches.com

  19. Aardsy's rating of the film The Exterminating Angel

    Feels like every dinner party I've been to.

  20. †. Kennedy Pope's rating of the film The Exterminating Angel

    A fantastic stab at the hypocrisy of the upper class. Buñuel makes his thoughts on the wealthy clear in this surrealist dramatic comedy--directing under the firm belief that the comfort in their lavish lifestyles is the one thing that separates them from savagery. Remove the comfort, and their humanity soon follows.

  22. João Pedro Afonso's rating of the film The Exterminating Angel

    As personagens entram duas vez, saem apenas uma. O que deixam para trás é o que faz o filme.

  23. bagno's rating of the film The Exterminating Angel

  24. Лиич's rating of the film The Exterminating Angel

    Bunuel: a master of cinema I have yet to discover completely. This is the first movie that I have seen of him, and I was completely baffled and taken into his world of nonsense and the bizarre. Can't wait to see more.
