Audience Reviews for The Young One

  • Oct 16, 2009
    Bunuel in English! Wish the film was better. Bunuel's hallmarks are not all that visible beyond a taboo pedophilia element, and neither that nor the racism theme are treated with any notable degree of insight. Furthermore, Bernie Hamilton's jazzy character is saddled with some "I don't dig you cats"-like lingo which comes off rather stale and dated. I haven't seen every Bunuel film (yet?), but I suspect this is the only one which might remind anyone of Russ Meyer!
