Directed by Luis Bunuel
Spanish surrealist Luis Bunuel's first
English-language film, produced while the director was in self-imposed
exile in Mexico, is an adaptation of Daniel Dafoe's novel about the
infamous shipwreck victim. A fine rendition of the classic tale of
survival, with Bunuel throwing in a few subtle jabs at religion and the
complacency of society. This was also the first of Bunuel's films to be
shot in color. Stars Dan O'Herlihy. 90 minutes.
