This Strange Passion

Luis Buñuel Mexico, 1953

David Grillo's rating of the film Él

The montage places him next to catholicism and his upper class it transplants repression with his own strange passion that in order for this man to manipulate his estranged lover first he must manipulate his own soul. He cages his love. He is no longer the man he was and further apart from the man he is supposed to be he looses touch with his identity he looses a way to look at himself.
