"Luis Bunuel's deliciously satiric masterpiece about social mores and class hypocrisy. Opening with a group of friends arriving on the wrong day for a dinner engagement, so begins a sequence of unexpected and unusual events. In their quest for a lavish feast, the dividing line between reality and dreams becomes unclear for each guest, leading the viewer on an intoxicating journey that at once appears both calculated and careless. A masterpiece of surrealist cinema"--Container

Bunuel illustrates in this satiric parable that society, placed in certain test conditions, breaks down from its internal contradictions and falsities.

As time passes without food, water or the ministrations of servants, their social facades crumble giving way to bestiality. (Does not circulate)

161 editions published between 1976 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 1,076 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Luis Bunuel's final film explodes with eroticism, bringing full circle to the director's lifelong preoccupation with the darker side of desire.

With subversive flare, Bunuel uses two different actresses in the lead role: Carole Bouquet, a sophisticated French beauty and Angela Molina, a Spanish coquette. Drawn from Pierre Louys's 1898 novel, La Femme et le Pantin

L'age d'or by Luis Buñuel( Visual )

124 editions published between 1930 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,023 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Luis Buũel's second film is a surreal attack on bourgeois ideals that incited a riot when first released and still retains its power to shock. Buũel began the film as a collaboration with Salvador Dalí, but after a few days working together the two had a falling out and Buũel made the film himself, incorporating many of Dalí's ideas. Its narrative follows two nameless characters, a man and a woman, through a series of scenes connected by dreamlike logic as they try, unsuccessfully, to make love. One memorable sequence finds the couple writhing around on a cliff when a mob of socialites comes upon them and pries them apart. Frustrated, the man sees a yelping poodle and kicks it into the air. "L'age d'or" is not only an attack on bourgeois life but also a doctrine that directs humanity to live as the surrealists believed they should: that is, by placing love before everything else in life, such as the church, status, and family. Funny, disturbing, and thoroughly bizarre, Buũel's film is a purposefully blasphemous and corrosive work that attacks social institutions with such vigor and imagination that one cannot help but be entertained

Le journal d'une femme de chambre by Luis Buñuel( Visual )

125 editions published between 1963 and 2014 in 10 languages and held by 835 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Celestine begins work as a chambermaid in a crumbling Normandy estate, she is privy to the most personal of details about each of the members of the household: M. Monteil's craving for sex, Mm. Rabour's embittered repression, father-in-law M. Rabour's refined fetishism. But when two unexpected and shocking events take place in the quiet country community, Celestine suspects that the staunchly right-wing farm labourer, Joseph, is involved, and does everything in her power to make him confess"--Container
Le fantôme de la liberté The phantom of liberty by Luis Buñuel( Visual )

137 editions published between 1973 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Phantom of Liberty opens in nineteenth century Toledo. Drunken French troops randomly murder Toledo's citizenry as they desecrate the church. In an abrupt shift, director Buñuel then segues to a modern-day Parisian park, where two au pairs engage in a conversation on the horrors of Napoleonic wars, while a few feet away their young charges are accosted by a local pederast. In this tour of the modern condition, the film then shifts to the children's Parisian parents and then farther afield to embrace a seemingly random critique of the contemporary European psyche
