LUIS BUÑUEL'S WICKED SATIRE

MUBI Special

Spanish exile Luis Buñuel is (in)arguably one of cinema’s subversive heroes. We’re delighted to present two of his paramount masterpieces back-to-back.

The Exterminating Angel

Luis Buñuel Mexico, 1962

Today we continue our Buñuel double bill with one of his most scathing satires: The Exterminating Angel. In classic Buñuelian fashion, a perfect storytelling conceit gives way to one of the most comic and pleasurable attacks on the power structures inherent in contemporary high societies.

Viridiana

Luis Buñuel Spain, 1961

Luis Buñuel is (in)arguably one of cinema’s subversive heroes. We’re delighted to present two of his paramount works back-to-back, starting with his Palme d’Or winner masterpiece—an irreverent, controversial scan of Franco’s Spain and Catholic hypocrisy infamously branded blasphemous by the Vatican.
