"Ernesto Acevedo-Munoz considers Bunuel's Mexican films - made between 1947 and 1965 - within the context of a national and nationalist film industry, comparing the filmmaker's employment of styles, genres, character types, themes, and techniques to those most characteristic of Mexican cinema. His book offers narrative and contextual analyses of Bunuel's best-known and most obscure Mexican films - from Los olvidados and El to A Woman Without Love and Death and the River - and explores the director's place in Mexican cinema as survivor, rebel, and inspiration for a subsequent generation of filmmakers. In this study Bunuel's films emerge as a link between the classical Mexican cinema of the 1930s through the 1950s and the "new" cinema of the 1960s, flourishing in a time of crisis for the national film industry and introducing some of the stylistic and conceptual changes that would revitalize Mexican cinema."--Jacket.
