Brilliant. No less impressive though the funding fell through during shooting and Bunuel was forced to rewrite the film from a feature to a 45 minute short overnight... it's still a classic. Pinal is beautiful as ever, and hilariously anarchic as the Devil sent to tempt Simon from his pillar in the desert. A real pleasure and a film that deserves a much wider audience.
Awesome movie! Really funny and ironic most of the time, and the ending was amazing. You can analyze it however you want, but you have to admit that what takes place is effective.
Really good, but perhaps a bit too long.
