Every 4 months or so I have a day that reminds me of Luis Buñuel‘s The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie in its absurdity. Amazingly enough (for better or for worse), the film is available for viewing in its entirety on youtube.
It’s a surreal portrait of the bourgeoisie and slightly more narrative than another of my favorite Buñuel films, Un Chien Andalou, a collaboration with Salvador Dali. Not bad for his first film! This one is only 12 mins long but also entirely available on youtube. Thanks, internet! I will warn you though, without giving anything away, that this film is best known for one particularly squeamish moment…
I think its high time I did a Buñuel marathon. I can’t get enough surreality.
