Bu˝uel in the Labyrinth of the Turtles (Bu˝uel en el laberinto de las tortugas) Reviews

July 18, 2020
As a"making of" movie, however, it's instantly gratifying and easily comparable with Les Blank's Fitzcarraldo film Burden of Dreams.

An engaging if somewhat demure animation, bordering occasionally on a kind of gentle sentimentality that is inimical to the subject...

The animation is nothing remarkable, but the story is compelling, especially for Bu˝uel fans.

It's a curio for the completist, but not an unworthy one.

The 2D animated rendering of the master filmmaker is more graphic interpretation than faithful portrait, perfect to cruise between reality and the anxiety-fueled nightmares that besiege his sleep.

At its best, Bu˝uel and the Labyrinth of the Turtles is as caught between dream and reality as the film that Bu˝uel made in the mountains of Spain.

At its most absorbing, "Bu˝uel in the Labyrinth of the Turtles" makes it clear there are no easy answers, perhaps especially when the art itself isn't easy.

The animation is handsome, the graphic settings understated but intelligently detailed.
August 13, 2019
A fun, clever, and wholly unexpected animated movie about the making of Luis Bu˝uel's "Land Without Bread."

Bunuel is above all a good story elegantly told, transcending its obviously niche appeal and showing that Spanish animation, following last year's multiple award-winning Another Day of Life, is looking healthy.

Though undeniably charming, Bu˝uel can be a difficult character to like here, but that's the point...
