Item description for Exterminating Angel (Green Integer Books:) by Luis Bunuel...

An aristocrat named Nobil invites several society friends to his house after the opera. But even as the dinner preparations are underway, servants feel compelled to leave. Despite threats of dismissal, the footman also leaves, and, as the guests arrive other servants escape. Dinner is served and hours pass, but the guests do not leave. Finally, each refusing to be the first to leave the party, distrust sets in, and the guests turn on their host, blaming him for their self-induced captivity.

One of Bunuel's most sardonically humorous and visually dazzling of movies, Exterminating Angel reveals itself as a screenplay to be also a linguistically brilliant satire of social aspirations. This 1962 film presents in self in script form as a great work of literature.

Reviews - What do customers think about Exterminating Angel (Green Integer Books:)?

Bunuel's Surreal Script  May 6, 2005
The probability is high that you have reached this web page while searching the terms surreal, surrealism or Luis Bunuel. Literary consumers who seek these terms are already well versed on the legacy of surrealists and do not merit a long lecture from me on what Bunuel's philosophy entails and how The Exterminating Angel exemplifies it. At the same time, having read the book several times, I do not think I can reduce this book review to a mere blurb filled with adjectives. It seems important to point out, even to die-hard fans of the surreal creed, the merits of reading a work that is already well regarded as a cinema. While the movie is a voyeuristic journey for the viewer, the book, which is the script, points fingers at the reader. The movie encourages the viewer to laugh at the bourgeoisie without a sense of self-questioning discomfort. The book's dark humor, devoid of the distractions of moving picture, engages a reader and forges a sense of identification with the hapless characters. The book is not so much Bunuel thumping class conflict issues as much as an unpretentious look at how people can be trapped in loveless relationships, dishonest social pretensions and customs, spiritually toxic religious practices, and, well, sheer greed....The symbology of Bunuel's work acquires different complexions in the book-you go figure out what it reveals to you. Be forewarned, Bunuel is the exterminating angel who will trap you in the pages of this book. To end with a blurbism - a fascinating voyage for an enquiring mind.
