Disturbing Bunuel film.

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.

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

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