  1. Maximilian R.'s rating of the film Viridiana

    My first Buñuel and still one of my favorites! Full of great symbolism and Franco bashing.

  2. AKFilmFan's rating of the film Viridiana

    An audacious drama that begins with a weird first half (that partially reveals Bunuels fetishes) then flips and reveals his darkly humorous look at religion. It doesn't completely work but when it does it's interestingly cynical and comfortable with it; it's the type of film where a saved stray dog is just one of many and helping the unfortunate (who even hate a "leper") leads to a disastrous dinner.

  3. msmichel's rating of the film Viridiana

    Essential. Bunuel certainly knew how to push the buttons of the church and the censors and it is still inflammatory today. Wonderful script questioning faith, human nature and blind optimism. Pinal and Rey perfectly cast plus a wonderful group of villians and beggars.

  4. Wade Meyer's rating of the film Viridiana

  5. Francisco Lopez's rating of the film Viridiana

    My favorite Buñuel movie and one of my favorite movies in the world. SIlvia Pinal is amazing. She's the mexican version of Deborah Kerr.

  6. Jon's rating of the film Viridiana

    Nasty, odd, licentious, scintillating and - all things considered - pretty glorious.

  7. DSPRKY's rating of the film Viridiana

    The plot is more than a little ludicrous; the images are nice when you're not being beaten over the head with them.

  8. deni.a's rating of the film Viridiana

    yeah I'm agree with the one below me, the power scene is just The Last Supper and when Viridiana got tranquilized by his own uncle. The rest is ordinary

  9. - Caltiki -'s rating of the film Viridiana

  10. Cineastic's rating of the film Viridiana

    There were some memorable sequences in this film (such as the re-enactment of the Last Supper). However, I found this film to be overall lacklustre and sloppily realised. The plot didn't interest me at all either. It really feels like watching a black-and-white telenovela more than a serious arthouse picture.

  11. xrystyna's rating of the film Viridiana

    for me it had it's moments, but all in all was annoying in its snobbishness and shallowness. i guess it might have had a power to shock in 1961, but this power has worn off significantly

  12. Gylfi's rating of the film Viridiana

    The last supper scene is a fine example for why I love films. More than 50 years after it's release, Viridiana still has the same power to shock. Absolutely loved it !

  13. Amadeus Magnus's rating of the film Viridiana

  14. Harry Rossi's rating of the film Viridiana

    This could be my favorite Buñuel! (this or Discreet Charm) It was definitely my most emotional Buñuel experience. I absolutely loved it on every level. The dinner scene at the end is one the most incredible things ever committed to celluloid. This film really managed to absolutely shock me which is getting harder and harder to do! Just absolutely incredible and well shot too! Perhaps one of my new favorite films.

  15. Tigrão's rating of the film Viridiana

    Good god, that dinner scene was just incredible. Grotesque, violent, hilarious and beautiful.

  16. wolfmansRazor's rating of the film Viridiana

    Bunuel clearly admires Viridiana's religious devotion even as he ridicules her Catholicism. He identifies with Rey, though he abhors his entitled social status. He empathizes with the bums, while still revealing their baseness. If this remote estate, with its lonely lord and colony of the downtrodden, has all seemed a bit unreal and out of time, that's because it is. In the end, pop music & gambling & no more ideals.

  17. MrPinkGorilla's rating of the film Viridiana

    Es impensable no sentir el respiro detrás de cámara del Sr. Buñuel en cada toma, su marca en el cine y en esta película desnuda toda percepción hecha en el cine mismo, transgresor, delicado, perfeccionista y amante de la verdad, Buñuel muestra en Viridiana algo que no pensábamos que podíamos ver hasta ese momento y por encima de eso, lo hace más que ningún otro totalmente suyo.

  18. Tabikenezer von Higglesbloom's rating of the film Viridiana

    Bosley Crowther hit the nail on the head with this one, imo.

  19. Daniela's rating of the film Viridiana

    Entertaining, but overall too heavy handed in it message and a bit of a disappointment for a Buñuel.

  20. Christofer Pierson's rating of the film Viridiana

    Wickedly dry, deadpan satire. Sabroso!

  21. soiwaswrong's rating of the film Viridiana

    The most irritating part here are the abusive and ambitious and out of control paupers... It shows how are they different and why they became miserable...

  22. Chris's rating of the film Viridiana

  23. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Viridiana

    Sweet charity. Fairly early entry in the 'everyday surrealism' Bunuel excels at and a brazenly pointed - if sometimes obvious - swipe at hypocrisy and human frailty, religious or otherwise.

  24. Jason Miller's rating of the film Viridiana

    OH my This was SO awesome. I was either either giggling at his sharp-tongued-ness, frightened out of my mind, or both. I love you dearly, Luis Bunuel
