Never have I got such a message of the cruelty of the sport as is conveyed in this film, which owes much of its excitement to superb color photography.
Francesco Rosi's 1965 feature is widely (and plausibly) considered the best movie about bullfighting, in part because of its irony and finesse in capturing how the sport springs from and plays against the social reality of Spain.
It's a colourful, cruel world of senseless exploitation (of animals and humans alike) and tyrannical traditions, rendered with vivid brilliance by this uncommonly unsentimental director.
Arguably the greatest bullfighting movie ever made.
The best film on bullfighting.
There's one thing I can say about every bullfighting movie I've seen: I'm always rooting for the bull.
ends up feeling distracted, constantly torn away from developing an interesting protagonist in favor of lingering on the behind-the-scenes machinations of the business of bullfighting and bullfighting itself
The Moment of Truth tells the story of a farm boy, Mateo, who heads for the bullrings of Barcelona and quickly becomes a top-rated toreador and press darling. His downfall is just as abrupt, however.
This fable of the disposable performer rising above his class transcends ordinary fiction to be an expressive visual record of the art of bullfighting: primal, brutal, repellent and magnetic in equal measure. [Blu-ray]
