My feeling is that his canvas is too narrow and his social comment too plain to keep our interest fixed upon his people and their barren stewing for an hour and a half.

A macabre comedy, a mordant view of human nature that suggests we harbor savage instincts and unspeakable secrets.

Absurdity is relative; it requires a reality (or something less absurd) to be contrasted with.

I watched it and I don't know what it means either, but it's a hell of a movie.

In typical fashion, Bu雝el offers no explanation, but the way your head spins around this simple premise makes each scene more fun than the last.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

A deliciously sardonic black comedy in the best surrealistic tradition of auteur Luis Bu雝el.

Bu雝el faz uma contundente cr癃ica burguesia atrav廥 da s嫢ira e do absurdo.

A blistering attack on social classes and conventions, The Exterminating Angel may be the best in a long line of Bu雝el masterpieces.

Trained bears, sheep, and Bunuel's typical contempt for the church all mix to create a classic of cinema.

If not necessarily Bu雝el's greatest film, this unclassifiable creation must count as one of the most twisted stunts ever mounted for the screen.

A wickedly designed, satirical and quite possibly dangerous work.

Bunuel's ultimate cosmic joke against meaning itself

Though less popular than other works, this is one of Bunuel's most philosophically profound and eccentric films, bearing undeniably disturbing effects on the viewers.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

One of Luis Bunuel's masterworks, The Exterminating Angel is a brilliant surrealist allegory about a group of socialites who, inexplicably find themselves unable to leave their host's house, and gradually degenerate into violence and depravity.
