5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime gem, 8 Mar. 2007
This review is from: Ascent To Heaven [DVD] (DVD)
Luis Bunuel's films are some of the most special and beautiful in all of cinema. His major works like Belle de Jour, Viridiana, Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie, Obscure Object of Desire are classics, but now we are able to see some of his more 'minor' works, like this sublime gem from 1951.

SUBIDA AL CIELO - ASCENT TO HEAVEN (or Mexican Bus Ride to give it it's rather ordinary US title) is a real delight. A dark comedy about a young son travelling across country in a rickety bus in order to secure a lawyer (and a will) for his dying mother is both touching and hilarious. Stuck on a vehicle with a bunch of priests, liars, prostitutes and vagabonds the young man is torn every-which-way as he tries to steer clear of temptation. The film also features an amazing, hallucinatory dream-sequence which is classic Bunuel.
