The liberal social conscience picture is given caustic treatment by Bunuel as he examines a violent gang of Mexican kids who inflict cruelty on everyone who crosses their paths. Rather than lay blame solely on social factors, Bunuel shows his surrealist roots by emphasising the dreams and sexuality of the individual. Brilliant, an early masterpiece from the Andulusian dog.
