The Young and the Damned
Drama • 1950 • 1 hr 17 min
OR Los Olvidados (Forgotten Ones). Shades of Italian Neorealism w/ surrealism. Difference: Bunuel doesn't seek sympathy. It's too late.
This is hands down the greatest film Buñuel ever directed, i need no more words to describe it other than "perfect". Everyone should see it.
Dirty, gritty, disgusting, messed up and unfortunately very real.
Realistic look of life in the slums where the need for survival and desire for pleasure mixes with traces of humanity.
Realistic and unappologetic, not the best mexican movie or even the best Buñuel, but still a great piece of cinema done with perfect craft.
A Luis Buñuel Masterpiece, the intense and brutal realism really faced Mexico with a part of his uncomfortable reality
Relato tan nacional como universal. Una rareza en el cine mexicano: la tragedia de la pobreza sin apelar a "la bondad intrínseca" de esta.
Realistic and a little bit surrealistic sometimes, very tragic and sad movie. Don't watch depressed
Very good but is hard to watch without cry in my experience
A more straightforward narrative from Buñuel has the director focally examining the hell of youths born into the slums
