Death Of A Cyclist: The Criterion Collection

Upper-class geometry professor Juan and his wealthy married mistress Maria Jose, driving back from a late-night rendezvous, accidentally hit a cyclist, and run. The resulting, exquisitely shot tale of guilt, infidelity, and blackmail reveals the wide gap between the rich and the poor in Spain, and surveys the corrupt ethics of a society seduced by decadence. Juan Antonio Bardem's charged melodrama Death Of A Cyclist (Muerte de un ciclista) was a direct attack on 1950s Spanish society under Franco's rule. Though it was ultimately affected by the dictates of censorship, the film's sting could never be dulled.
