Queering Buñuel: Sexual Dissidence and Psychoanalysis in his Mexican and Spanish Cinema (International Library of Cultural Studies)


As the daddy of cinematic Surrealism, broad severe awareness has been dedicated to Luis Buñuel’s cinema. a lot has been written approximately his first Surrealist motion pictures of the Twenties and Thirties and the French paintings videos of the Nineteen Sixties and Nineteen Seventies. besides the fact that, right here for the 1st time is a queer re-reading of Buñuel’s Spanish-language movies permitting us to view Buñuel’s cinema via a lens of queer spectatorship. targeting the movies Buñuel produced in Mexico and Spain in the course of the Nineteen Fifties and Sixties, Julián Daniel Gutiérrez-Albilla argues no longer that Buñuel’s motion pictures have a gay subplot, yet that there are a number of sorts of id, subjectivity and sexuality found in those motion pictures.

Queering Buñuel brings jointly the fields of movie experiences, feminist and queer idea, Hispanic reports, psychoanalysis and paintings conception. Gutiérrez-Albilla succeeds in reconceptualizing Buñuel’s Mexican and Spanish motion pictures past geographical, historic and disciplinary limitations, wondering not only how we see Buñuel, but in addition how we see cinema.
