This Strange Passion

Luis Buñuel Mexico, 1953

mubianer's rating of the film Él

35mm. Buñuel meets Hitchcock, sort of, apparently the bell tower scene was an inspiration for "Vertigo". Still a typical Buñuelian main character, a rich aristocrat captured by his desires. A horror film of the mind. The terror comes from inside.
