Critic Reviews for The Young One
[The film] is full of poetic asides and unexpected developments, revealing Bunuel's dark, philosophical wit at its most personal.
A rarely seen provocative racially and Lolita-like themed drama.
It gets under the skin of these characters, but offers little relief.
Zachary Scott and Bernie Hamilton star as deadly adversaries on an island hell in Luis Bunuel's The Young One, a rarely shown English-language gem about racism and pedophilia.
Audience Reviews for The Young One
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!
