Example text

A belief that originates with Don Lope (Fernando Rey) in Tristana: “I say to hell with the work you have to do to earn a living! That kind of work does us no honour; all it does is fill up the bellies of the pigs who exploit us. ” Furthermore, just as Slacker may be understood as a reworking of La Voie lactée, so Linklater’s SubUrbia (1996) in which disgruntled youths spend all night unable to leave a street corner is one of El ángel exterminador, while in preproduction notes for his Dazed and Confused (1993), Linklater claims he “quickly had to learn to drop all references to Los olvidados” (Pierson, 1996: 196) so as not to alienate the major studios.

Although increasingly fragile and hindered by his deafness, his vicious yet affirmative discourse on the failings and frustrations of an ageing man (Fernando Rey), whose clumsy seduction of the young woman played by two actresses leads him to confront the base and disrespectful cravings of his desire, was also Buñuel at his most resolute. He retired thereafter and, with the help of Carrière, wrote his magical and untrustworthy autobiography Mon dernier soupir, which was published in 1982 and which provides an account of key episodes in his life, descriptions of his friends and family, bemusing outlines of dreams, and an array of encounters with numerous artists and filmmakers as well as memories of student pranks, family matters, and filming.

The film deconstructs the conventions of the documentary genre with the disjunction of Pathé-style voice-over commentary and disturbing images, which creates a tension and incongruence that deliberately threatens the authoritative prerogative of the genre. Las Hurdes was promptly banned and would remain so for over 40 years. If, however, Buñuel’s fictions mostly contain their absurdities within Classical or Romantic conventions, the enduring legacy of Las Hurdes on the documentary form is one that does broach a Modernist dialectic in its deconstruction of the conventions of the genre.
