Reviews
ReviewSource CinePassion.org
Review The political and the bestial brought together by Luis Bunuel in a burlesque of Victorian melodrama, very radicalized, very funny -- "La ley es la ley," the rich oppressor (Andres Soler) tells the tenants about to be tossed out of their homes, a pan from an ornate Virgin Mary shrine to the slaughterhouse below finds the titular troglodyte (Pedro Armendariz) dragging a carcass across the floor. The plot opens on a note of communal insurrection: the tenants refuse to leave their building, Soler consults his wife (Katy Jurado) about ways to quell their revolt, she responds by scissoring off the heads of her flowers. Armendariz is the boss's Caliban, shanghaied from his leeching family to do Soler's bidding, a bovine hothead who cracks walnuts with the flex of his biceps and grins like a kid at the sight of Jurado sprawled provocatively in his bed...The violence within Armendariz is no match for Jurado's own passion, however; climactic revelations make the revolution an Oedipal matter, the hysteria escalates subversively until it boils over, leaving exposed nerves and Bunuel's superb final jest, human melodrama reflected in the accusatory eye of the rooster perched on a staircase.

Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine ...remains one of Bunuel's crowning achievements.
Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader The hero's wonderful crooked walk in the final shot seems the perfect emblem of Bunuel's own sly subversion in adverse circumstances.
