Directed by Luis Buñuel

With Arturo de Córdova, Delia Garcés, Carlos Martínez Baena, Manuel Dondé, Fernando Casanova

“One of Luis Buñuel's crowning achievements”
—Slant Magazine

Hardly a stranger to controversy, Buñuel faced a particularly tough audience at the Cannes premiere of this Mexican production. According to Georges Sadoul, “the jury described it as a bad B-picture and it was booed by 200 war veterans.” In truth, El is a perverse, sacred-cow-skewering portrait of a husband gripped by insane jealousy, a film so effective that Jacques Lacan screened it for his students as an exemplar of irrational paranoia.
