The Exterminating Angel (1962)
Luis Buñuel
95 min

In Buñuel’s 1962 surrealism-tinged film (from the director’s Mexican period), a roomful of dinner party guests are inexplicably unable to leave. As they descend into anarchy, we are treated to a sly dissection of human nature as the thin veneer of so-called civilisation (bourgeois, of course) dissolves.
