Where do I start with Luis Bunuel films?
I've seen Un Chien Andalou but that's it. I'd like to see other feature films of his.
I have some beer to help me sit through.
Can you guys tell me what appeal do you find in his films?
They don't make much sense and are pretty hard to watch.
I'm not saying anything bad with that, opposite actually, I would like to hear what you like about it that could possibly change the way I can seen his films.
Bunuel films are fun even without beer, you should watch either Simon or The Exterminating Angel next. Discreet Charm might go over your head a few places on your first watch but all of his films have rewatch ability.
i think the absurdism in some of his films is funny. They can be quite transgressive especially compared with the stuff of the times they were made. but i'd say that since they don't take themselves too seriously its easy to have a laugh while enjoying something cerebral and erotic
A bit like the guy from Wendy's scene in Mulholland Dr.?
Comedies with hints of surrealism
>Ensayo de un crimen
>El ángel exterminador
>Simón del desierto
>Abismos de pasión
Second European period
>Belle de jour
>Le charme discret de la bourgeoisie
>Le fantôme de la liberté
You can start with any of those it depends on what you want to see, most early mexican Buñuel films are pretty average I guess you can start with the second european period
