The best known film of Bunuel's Mexican period, LOS OLVIDADOS looks unflinchingly at life in a Mexican slum. Full of offbeat images and symbolism, Bunuel mixes realism and surrealism in what became something of a trademark style for him, but the only other film Bunuel did that compares to the realism in this film is his documentary LAND WITHOUT BREAD. Like the Italian neo-realists, Bunuel used mostly non-professional actors and shot entirely on location. Constricted by a tight budget, Bunuel was not able to include a couple of surreal sequences he had originally conceived, but this is still one of Bunuel's most powerful films.
