Film Sunday: “The Exterminating Angel” (1962)


The story is set in a prosperous locale somewhere in Latin America. Guests gather in evening dress for a party, which they subsequently find they are unable to leave. The result is a social portrait and dark satire, whose wit carries undertones of menace. This continues our look at some of the great films of director Luis Buñuel, who prepared this script from an unpublished play by Jose Bergamin.
