After a lavish dinner party in a stately mansion, the guests believe themselves unable to leave the premises. As the days pass, the elaborate facades of their social positions collapse and they are forced to live like animals. Finally discovering they are actually free to leave, they go to church to give thanks, where they are again trapped. This is a furthering of Buñuel's wicked takedown of the rituals and dependencies of the frivolous upper classes, full of eerie and hilarious absurdity

After meeting a band of Mexican revolutionaries bent on resisting the French occupation of Mexico, the cowboy and Sister Sara decide to join forces with the freedom fighters and set off on a deadly mission to capture the enemy's garrison. But along the way, a steamy romance develops between them when the soft-spoken hero discovers the nun is not what she seems. Ending with a violent climax at the well-protected fort, this action-packed western classic cemented Eastwood's status as a true cinematic superstar!

Nazarín by Luis Buñuel( Visual )

18 editions published between 1958 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story opens in front of an impoverished Mexican inn, the year is 1900. A decaying sign displays the name of the establishment, Inn of the Heroes. Busy women, street vendors, a trio of prostitutes, and a few beggars are lounging in front of the inn. Father Nazario (Francisco Rabal) announces that someone has entered his rooms and stolen his clothes along with the few coins that he had saved from the last church collection. The only clothing he has left is the cassock he is wearing. Nazario does not wish to press charges with the police, but he believes that the thief was probably Camilla, a loose woman from the neighborhood. The prostitute Andara discovers that her cousin Camilla was indeed involved in the burglary of Nazario's quarters. She gets into a vicious fight with Camilla and is badly wounded. Hoping to protect Andara, Father Nazario hides her in his rooms, but she is quickly found by the police. Having discovered a prostitute in his rooms the Catholic authorities decide to defrock Nazario. Left with nothing, he decides to wander the countryside as an itinerant priest. Director Luis Bunuel's portrait of Nazario is a powerful indictment of humanity's superficial embrace of the spiritual. Again and again the quixotic Nazario insists on practicing a pure form of Christianity, celebrating honesty, poverty and forgiveness, yet he is consistently reviled by both high and low society
