From 1960, greater financial and technical resources allowed him to make, in Spain and France, the films for which he is best known: Viridiana (1961), Belle de jour (1966), Tristana (1970), The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie (1972), and That Obscure Object of Desire (1977). Although the French films in particular are less aggressive and more ironic than his early work, they nevertheless reveal Bunuel's continuing preoccupations: sex, bourgeois values, and religion." "In this study, Gwynne Edwards analyses Bunuel's films in the context of his personal obsessions and suggests that, in contrast to any of his fellow artists, he experienced a degree of sexual inhibition surprising in a surrealist."--BOOK JACKET.
