Bunuel, for the first time in his life, was busy earning a decent living by turning out popular comedies and melodramas for Latin American audiences and, occasionally, making films of real distinction. El Bruto is not one of these.

a Frankenstein variant as the title character is physically as strong as the cattle he slaughters, yet the gentle soul remains vulnerable to the charms of women

[A] rambunctious, entertaining film.

Disturbing Bunuel film.

Sure, El Bruto is relatively apolitical but that's because Buñuel is drunk on animal magnetism.

One of the excellent early films Buñuel made while in Mexico.
