Description

Los Olvidados 1950
1h 20m | Crime, Drama | 9 November 1950 (Mexico)
Storyline:Hell-bent on revenge, cocky reform-school runaway El Jaibo returns to his old neighborhood in post-World-War-II Mexico City’s poor and squalid slums, to reunite with his faithful gang of juvenile delinquents and street urchins. However, as the dangerous ringleader lives and breathes retribution, his destructive obsession to find the informant who supposedly sent him to jail will intricately interweave his bitter fate with that of Pedro, his weak, unwitting accessory, in a despicable act of pure evil. In the end, are humans inherently good or bad? Is immorality contingent with society?User review:Atheist, Marxist, Freudian, Surrealist, anarchist, fetishist, satirist, or Spaniard, Luis Buñuel was all these or more… One of the greatest of all filmmakers, Buñuel expressed an extraordinary personal vision of the world through an exceptional self-effacing special taste, creating a body of work unequaled in its abundance of meaning and its power by any otherIn 1946, Buñuel moved to Mexico where, between more conventional assignments, he summed up his creativity with a vengeance… His first masterpiece of this prolific period, “The Young and the Damned” was a masterpiece of social surrealism and the founding work of third world barrio repulsionPortraying the distress of delinquents in MexicoCity’s streets, he admitted the effects of shockingly cruel environment but declined to glamorize his victim-heroes: the gang torments a blind beggar who is himself a skillful paedophile, while a Freudian dream the most ‘innocent’ boy fights a friend for his mother’ s sexual favorsThe film is powerful enough to make a one firm man weep or encourage a true-believer to lose hope… Once seen, its disturbing images can never be forgotten.
