Description: Seldom has there been a more descriptive and succinct film title than Illusion Travels by Streetcar. Luis Bunuel offers us nothing more or less than a series of hallucinatory images, experienced by two senior citizens while taking their last ride on the Mexico City public transit system. One of the more startling shots (though not the most) depicts slabs of raw meat dangling from the racks of the streetcar, in the manner of a mobile deep-freeze. Oddly enough, the film observes all commercial considerations; this is surrealism made palatable to even the most conservative of filmgoers. Illusion Travels by Streetcar was originally released as La Ilusion Viaja en Tranvia.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
