Review: Buñuel in the Labyrinth of the Turtles, 2019, dir. Salvador Simó

I probably say this a lot, but GKids routinely kills it with their yearly releases. Back in June, it was Funan. In August, it was Buñuel in the Labyrinth of the Turtles, an animated biopic doc thing chronicling Luis Buñuel’s efforts at making Las Hurdes: Land Without Bread.

“But Andy, I haven’t even seen that particular film,” you may say. Good news! Doesn’t matter. You’ll get the idea; the film is spliced with clips from the actual documentary, which means it’s kind of a twofer. Talk about value in this economy!
