The Exterminating Angel

The Exterminating Angel (1962), a brilliant surrealistic film made by Luis Bunuel. Guests arrive at a mansion for dinner but just before dinner, most of the serving staff and cook leave the mansion for one reason or another. Once the dinner is over and piano recital is also done it is almost 3 a.m. in the morning. But nobody leaves the mansion. They linger on one pretext or another and stay the night. One night becomes several nights, and by then all the food and even water in the house is exhausted. Tempers get flared between, jealousies come out in open, one elderly guy dies, two lovers commit suicide. The guests try to kill the host assuming that all this is his plot. Luis Bunuel is a brilliant Spanish-Mexican film maker with avant garde surrealism as his central motto. Brilliant movie for those who want to watch beyond the normal masala type movies
