Luis Bunuel's films are among the most difficult to understand. Watch An Andalusian Dog, and if you manage to understand more than 2 minutes of it, then you have made it more than I ever could. Same goes for Belle De Jour, although it is pretty much straightforward - It is the ending that has left a-many baffled. This film, however, is beyond anything I've seen.

Description: Bourgeois convention is demolished in Luis Bunuel's surrealist gem The Phantom of Liberty. Featuring an elegant soiree with guests seated at the toilet bowls, poker playing monks using religious medals as chips, and police officers looking for a missing girl who is right under their noses, this perverse, playfully absurd comedy of non ...

“Luis Bunuel's films are among the most difficult to understand. Watch An Andalusian Dog, and if you manage to understand more than 2 minutes of it, then you have made it more than I ever could. Same goes for Belle De Jour, although it is pretty much straightforward - It is the ending that has left a-many baffled. This film, however, is beyond anything I've seen. The Phantom of Liberty is an absurd, but delicious surreal film that has amusing little scenes here and there. Characters are not given enough screen time to form a personality and associate themselves with the backdrop, and being a surreal film, many events are left unexplained and a large body of them cover taboo topics. Unusual traits for a movie, but then again Bunuel was no usual, everyday director. The scenes don't make sense” read more

" More Bunuel, doing his wonderful parodies of rigid high class society. It's a free-form, loosely structured variety of tiny tales and musings. "

"Erinomainen kollaasi lähes kaikesta. Ohjaajan perusaiheet ovat tässäkin hyvin edustettuina, etunenässä kysymykset uskonnosta ja porvarillisen yhteiskunnan yleisestä eriskummallisuudesta ja tekopyhyydestä ja ties mistä."

"5.5. Niin äärimmäistä Buñuelia kuin hänen toiseksi viimeisen teoksensa voisi kuvitella olevan. Ohjaajan läsnäolo on jälleen vahvasti taustalla, kun elokuva leijailee erinäisiä auktoriteetteja härskisti pilkkaavasta segmentistä toiseen. Myös katsojan ennakkoluuloilla ja tekopyhyydellä pelaillaan ihailtavan julkeasti. Kokonaiskuvaa näin ennalta-arvaamattomasta filmistä on vaikeaa muodostaa, mutta yksittäisinä, absurdiudessaan helvetin hauskoina kohtauksina tästä ei voi olla "
