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).
As such, instead of fixing meanings, Buñuel’s cinema always means something different to different constituencies. In other words, the concept of intertextuality allows us to reconsider Buñuel’s cinema as always being, or becoming, in excess of the closure of interpretation and representation, always creating new representational spaces and interpretative positions that enable transversal, flexible cultural practices and critical readings that emerge and disappear endlessly through space and time.
27 Buñuel at home in Mexico City. Courtesy of the Filmoteca Española. And in the Spring The importance of Buñuel is in flux. Celebrations, honorary conferences, screenings, and inaugurations worldwide have attempted to claim him and his films as the property of various museums, critical theories, or social movements. He would have resisted them all; and yet his films can still be revisited in compelling and innovative ways, as the chapters that follow demonstrate. Indeed, they arguably signify the unjust appropriation of the man by the respectable elements of society; for, in response, this volume has the aim of making him disrespectful and irreverent once again, thereby returning to the uncompromising nature of Surrealism that moves in the direction of being incorporated into pre-established critical models and into the establishment and yet, in a more compelling fashion, veers in the direction of a non-assimilated space that is associated with an ongoing questioning of our human existence and subversion of hegemonic ideological positions.
