UW Cinematheque | LACIS Presents Luis Buñuel’s THE CRIMINAL LIFE OF ARCHIBALDO DE LA CRUZ (ENSAYO DE UN CRIMEN)

October 22, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free admission!
Mexico | 1955 | DCP | 89 min. | Spanish with English subtitles
Director: Luis Buñuel
Cast: Ernesto Alonso, Miroslava, Rita Macedo
Dark and deranged even by Buñuelian standards, this pitch-black, rarely screened comedy stands among the filmmaker’s finest Mexican films. The titular Archibaldo has a fetish for murdering beautiful women, but circumstances thwart his repeated attempts to consummate his warped dream. This being a Buñuel film, the perversion is naturally played for absurdity. Newly restored 4K DCP courtesy Cineteca Nacional Mexico.
