  2. matelot's rating of the film The Young One

  3. mubianer's rating of the film The Young One

    Obscure Bunuel, but well worth watching.

  4. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Young One

    Lo que no deja de ser atractivo es cómo Buñuel filtra su filia dentro de una película coproducida por EEUU. Me refiero a la figura de la niña, objeto del deseo, siendo presa fácil de un círculo masculino (incluyendo a un deprevado) a ojos de la misma decencia religiosa. La historia sin embargo está dentro de lo menos resplandeciente del director español, sobre el racismo y lo moralizante.

  5. João Eça's rating of the film The Young One

    More unfocused and ambiguous than most of Buñuel's work, but not in a bad way (as in for instance in "Le Journal d'une femme de chambre"). The ambiguous ending seems to suggest that despite our most inner and animal pulsions we, as human beings, can still live amongst ourselves. The priest that arrives on the island has a redemptive and religious quality that gives an even more ambiguous ressonance to the movie.

  6. Shayan Bazri's rating of the film The Young One

    editing of one of the first scene that the blackman escaped is fantastic,and very new to this day.

  8. lauli's rating of the film The Young One

    One of my favourite films I've seen by Buñuel. A small, isolated environment, with characters trapped in their own hell. It seems to have come our of a book by William Faulkner.

  9. Martin Wilson's rating of the film The Young One

    Strangely reminiscent, in its little, enclosed, hothouse world, of Russ Meyer's southern gothics in black & white - LORNA and MUDHONEY. All feature a fugitive, entering a humid backwater, but not quite finding the haven he was searching for. Maybe, it's time for a comparative study of these two auteurs. Outstanding photography by Gabriel Figueroa and a brilliant performance by Zachary Scott. Neglected for decades.

  10. ramosbarajas's rating of the film The Young One

    A tale of complex morality. It's aggressive in portraying characters with flaws, but even more so by siding with a black character. This happened as the Civil Rights Movement was barely becoming gaining momentum. It may surprise a casual viewer that the master of surrealist cinema would produce a film so sober. I feel this strengthens the film, while maintaining little moments that define his style.

  11. orangey's rating of the film The Young One

    Underrated for a reason: bland blend of youth sexuality and racism.Nothing interesting to say about either one

  12. chanandre's rating of the film The Young One

    [Cinémathèque PT #660: 35 mm] (2008) - that ending. in black and white. those waves. with 'Sinner Man' sung by Leon Bibb and with arrangement by Milton Okun in an era when records were not usual to be included on a film's soundtrack. Zachary Scott

  13. Louis's rating of the film The Young One

    One of Bunuel's finest and most under appreciated works. Very relevant commentary of the american situation.
