    I loved this movie. It feels more like a stage play but nonetheless it's really good. The only problem that i had was the fact that it's technically considered a comedy and i didn't get that at all. I could see where some things and the whole situation can be considered comical but I didn't think it was. I thought the whole film was a philosophical treaty in itself. I could take months analyzing every single thing about it and trying to figure out what Bunuel try to say with it. 7 years 5 months ago

    Amazing ending!! Hilarious.

    Full of teeth. This movie would be shocking if it was released today. A great dry run for Discreet Charm. Though I will say, for a movie with "exterminating" in the title, I'm disappointed that Buñuel didn't go the scatological route. There were a couple references to hygiene and one comment about the smell coming out of the house, but where were they going to the bathroom?!?!

    Genuinely puzzled as to why that wasn't addressed.
