Republic of Sin

Luis Buñuel's 1959 El fievre monte a El Pao follows a Latin American country's attempts at political reform after its dictator is assassinated. Buñuel described this as the worst of his French films (it was a French-Mexican production), yet it has its ardent defenders, among them Jean-Marie Straub and Daniele Huillet. As Buñuel's most directly political work, it certainly warrants a look. With Gerard Philipe, in his last screen appearance, and Maria Felix.
