    it could be a wonderful life...if you work hard and troll your family.

  2. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Great Madcap

    Buñuel en su etapa antes del surrealismo. La historia de una familia de sanguijuelas y un patriarca a la deriva es la excusa para una mirada sobre la marcada división social en México.

  3. Polyglot's rating of the film The Great Madcap

    ''Go get that boy and his devil's ham.''

  4. ramosbarajas's rating of the film The Great Madcap

    It's all great fun. With a clear and conventional narrative, the strength lies with the performances. They are all very good, and the overall effect is enjoyable. This film is important, if for no other reason that it allowed Buñuel to continue working in Mexico, and served to give him more experience in filmmaking; this was, after all, (just) his fifth film, even after having made his first film 20 years before.
