"Masterfully moving and as relevant (or more) today as over half a century ago"--NY Times.
After the startling "Un Chien Andalou" (a film on which Salvador Dali and Luis Bunuel collaborated), this was my introduction to director Bunuel. A very haunting film; I highly recommend it.
"Winner of two Cannes Film Festival awards, Luis Buñuel's 1950 film was the director's first international box-office success, and the beginning of a new chapter in the surrealist filmmaker's career."
"Filled with startlingly gritty neo-realist images and strange forays into nightmarish dream logic, LOS OLVIDADOS is one of the most unnerving depictions of poverty, cruelty, and teenaged angst ever made. ...A group of juvenile delinquents live a violent and crime-filled life in the festering slums of Mexico City, and the morals of young Pedro are gradually corrupted by the others."(Belcourt website).
***Let me know if you are interested in Boscos after the film.***
