Death of a Bureaucrat | Chicago Reader

Death of a Bureaucrat

A pleasant, very funny social comedy with a faint black lining. The film is full of hommages to silent comics—a Laurel and Hardy scene from Two Tars, some precipice tottering from Harold Lloyd—but its taste for quaint caricature and topical satire places it closer to the Ealing comedies made in Britain in the 50s. Amazingly, it was actually made in Cuba in 1966, by a director, Tomas Gutierrez Alea, who later traded his comic sense for social allegory (Memories of Underdevelopment, The Last Supper). 85 min.
