Arruza | 1970
The lives of bullfighters, whether in Mexico or in Spain or elsewhere in Latin America, carry a weight of romance and tragedy not found in other lives, even when they die of old age in their beds. All too often, they are maimed or killed in the ring. "Arruza" is a documentary that explores the life of the great Mexican matador, Arruza. He fought in the ring with great flair until 1953, retired to raise the very same breed of bulls he killed in the ring, and died in 1966.
