†. Kennedy Pope's rating of the film Viridiana

You want a lesson in social satire? Look no further. While in Buñuel's time this was for him a criticism of Fascist Spain and religion, his thoughts and observations are just as relevant and timeless today as they were in 1961. His formula for comedy as dark as this truly is unrelenting tragedy + time.
