Courtesy of the Filmoteca Española. 22 Rob Stone and Julián Daniel Gutiérrez-Albilla In subsequent Spanish cinema, we can trace explicit and implicit intertextual relationships between Buñuel and Spanish film movements and filmmakers. For instance, the allegorical cinema of the 1970s, whose emphasis on the use of the “trope of haunting,” to use Jo Labanyi’s concept, was an effective cinematic mechanism less as a way of negotiating with the conventions of the horror film genre than as a kind of surrealist incursion into the horrific for the representation of the violence of the Spanish Civil War and its repressive aftermath through, as Labanyi has put it, the use of suggestion rather than statement (2007).

That is to say, was he looking at American, Mexican, French, and Spanish culture from the outside in or was it a participatory engagement in all cultures? Where on Earth did Buñuel belong? This multiple vision of exilic perspectives helps to explain the objectivity that is maintained in his films because, for all its entomological reserve, the camera cannot resist equal observation of and reflection about saints and sinners, victims and terrorists, slaves and masters. Nevertheless, it is this contrapuntal awareness that 18 Rob Stone and Julián Daniel Gutiérrez-Albilla actually prompts an aesthetic response in the floating, unaligned camerawork and restrained, functional editing that contributes to the Surrealism of his films.
