(1958, Luis Buñuel) One of Buñuel’s most straightforward attacks (despite memorable surrealistic dream sequence) on the Catholic Church, as Francisco Rabal’s Padre Nazarín tries to lead a humble life of Christ-like sacrifice in turn-of-the-20th-century Mexico, only to meet with humiliation and hostility. Approx. 92 min. 35mm print with both English and Hebrew subtitles.
