Fair use rationale for Image:Elangelexterminadorscreenshot.jpg
Image:Elangelexterminadorscreenshot.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
Expanding the article
Is there any film criticsim that can be included or linked to discussing the premise of the film? I mean, why DON'T they leave?
Of course films will sometimes have unexplained premises, as the idea is to show how the characters react to events, not why the events occur. Hitchcock's 'The Birds' or the Bill Murray movie 'Groundhog Day', for example. But I would like to know if Bunuel was doing that, or if he also meant something by the inabilty to leave, the stultifying effect of bourgeois convention or something of the sort.
A little more film crit. would improve the article.
Franco invited Buñuel
>>> In 1960, General Francisco Franco had invited Luis Buñuel back to Spain after his long exile in Mexico since the Spanish Civil War (1936–39). Franco asked him to direct a movie of his choice
This is really ridiculous. Probably Franco did not even know who Buñuel was; and if he did, he anyway did not give a damn on Buñuel. Moreover, saying that Franco asked Buñuel to direct a movie of his choice is knowing nothing about Franco, Buñuel and the Spanish cinema at that time, all together.
The origin of the decision of making Viridiana in Spain is well known, and is related to the business and personal relationships built between Gustavo Alatriste and Ricardo Muñoz Suay (Uninci ceo), while another Uninci film (Sonatas, directed by Juan Antonio Bardem) was partially shot in Mexico.
And, of course, it has nothing to do with Franco.
