This is the best Crusoe I've ever seen.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
A true oddity for Bu˝uel.
| Original Score: 3/5
The film in its simple telling, without sentimentality, evokes a feeling of awe.
| Original Score: A
Exiled Spanish surrealist master Luis Bu˝uel created a micro-budgeted but remarkably effective adaptation of Daniel DeFoe's 1719 novel Robinson Crusoe.
| Original Score: 5/5
far more provocative than the more literal adaptation's of Defoe's classic
| Original Score: B-
A fine film with a strong central performance, although it is hardly representative of the director's trademark style.
| Original Score: 4/5
Bu˝uel posits a more existential relationship between Crusoe, nature and, most significantly, the character's loneliness.
May be the most shocking film ever made by the great filmmaker -- precisely because it isn't shocking at all.
Featuring an Oscar nominated turn by Dan O'Herlihy, this is a poignant version of the classic tale by the great Spanish director Luis Bunuel.
| Original Score: B+
