FILM: In the News

Classic Art Films added 2 new photos — watching Phantom of Liberty.

I am throwing myself a small Luis Buñuel movie marathon. Starting with his earlier films Un Chien Andalou and L' Age D'or, and moving all the way up to his latest French films such as The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie, The Obscure Object of Desire and The Phantom of Liberty.

Luis Bunuel was known to have life long fetishes and one of them was strangely the act and tradition of sitting down for dinner. In The Exterminating Angel several Bourgeois guests go to a house for dinner and for some unexplained reason cannot leave the guest room.

The Discreet Charm Of The Bourgeoisie consists on five bourgeois friends who go to a couples house to have dinner but every time they arrive there seems to be an interruption of some sort that stops them from having their meal. In Viridiana a group of homeless beggars break into a house and trash it, while getting drunk and eating the occupants food.

And finally, with The Phantom of Liberty Buñuel changes the social customs of eating and using the bathroom. For instance, it's appropriate to sit at the dinner table and use the toilet to defecate but when hungry you must excuse yourself from the table and eat your food privately in the rest room because it is considered a shameful act.
