5 stars out of 5 -- This is monochrome social realism as a living nightmare....A hugely influential, matter-of-factly brilliant film.

Product Description:

The best known film of Bunuel's Mexican period, LOS OLVIDADOS looks unflinchingly at life in a Mexican slum. At the center of the story are Pedro, a young boy who is walking the line between delinquency and responsibility, and Jaibo, an older, charismatic boy who has already chosen the former path. Jaibo exerts his influence over almost every boy in the village, and when he accidentally murders the only good role model Pedro has AND sleeps with Pedro's mother, it seems the path Pedro is to take has already determined itself. Full of offbeat images and symbolism, Bunuel mixes realism and surrealism in what became something of a trademark style for him, but the only other film Bunuel did that compares to the realism in this film is his documentary LAND WITHOUT BREAD. Like the Italian neo-realists, Bunuel used mostly non-professional actors and shot entirely on location. Constricted by a tight budget, Bunuel was not able to include a couple of surreal sequences he had originally conceived, but this is still one of Bunuel's most powerful films. Features the famous dream sequence where Pedro's mother floats after him with a raw piece of meat.
