This episode of the B-Movie Cast, Mary and Nic are joined by Juan to take a look at a classic of Mexican Cinema, that somewhat defies description: “The Exterminating Angel” (Spanish: El ángel exterminador). It’s a 1962 Mexican surrealist film written and directed by Luis Buñuel. It tells a story we can all identify with, what do you do when your party guests won’t leave? Only in this case there is an unknown compulsion preventing these wealthy aristocrats from vacating the scene. Not only can these folks not leave, but other people can’t come in either. It’s surrealism at its best with as much backstabbing, in fighting, classism, and scheming as any reality TV show, only this one doesn’t let the players exit… oh and there’s a bear too because… why not?
