Roxie Theater: The Exterminating Angel (El ángel exterminador)
August 24 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Playing in conjunction with BUÑUEL IN THE LABYRINTH OF THE TURTLES
“The great Spanish director Luis Buñuel traps us in the Surrealistic universe of THE EXTERMINATING ANGEL, his most bitter, most brilliant work since VIRIDIANA.” – Roger Ebert.
A dinner gathering of wealthy Mexican sophisticates at a mansion devolves when the servants abandon their posts and the guests are inexplicably unable to leave the grand music room. As days wear on, facades and hierarchies dissolve and the upper-crust prisoners become increasingly uncouth and downright animalistic. A scathing critique of bourgeois complacency, The Exterminating Angel remains one of the most fascinating and influential films in the history of cinema. Featuring international screen icon and VIRIDIANA star Silvia Pinal.
Directed by Luis Buñuel. 1962. 95 min. Mexico. In Spanish with English subtitles.
Presented by RoxCine.
