Summary "Los Olvidados (1950) established Luis Bunuel's reputation as a world-class director. Set in the slums of Mexico City, it follows the crime-filled and violent lives of a group of juvenile delinquents. The film exhibits some of Bunuel's trademark themes - unrequited love, social injustice and surrealism - but with a layer of compassion that sets it apart from many of his other films." "Mark Polizzotti explores the historical context, aesthetic importance and biographical significance of the film, providing the first complete overview of Los Olvidados in English. He also presents an introduction to the Mexican film industry and places Bunuel and his films within it."--BOOK JACKET.
