Le Charme discret de la bourgeoisie = Discreet charm of the bourgeoisie by Luis Buñuel( Visual )

89 editions published between 1972 and 2021 in 5 languages and held by 1,303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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

Viridiana by Luis Buñuel( Visual )

141 editions published between 1961 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Luis Bunuel's controversial film classic was denounced by the Vatican after its release in 1961. After leaving behind her life as a nun, the young Viridiana is confronted with the depravity and poverty of the world outside the convents walls. Beware of charity appears to be the message that permeates Bunuel's satire, but a deeper theme is the hypocrisy of the Catholic church and Spanish society in the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War. In one famous scene Bunuel arranged the dwarves and lepers that Viridiana invites into her home to reflect Leonardo Da Vinci's painting The Last Supper. This was the first flm that Bunuel had made in his native Spain in thirty years, and it is a stinging indictment of the insulated and undemocratic social conditions that existed in Franco's Spain at the time. The film was shot in Spain with a script that the Spanish censors had approved in advance. By the time the authorities realized the subversive nature of the film, the negative and original materials had already been removed to France. Further complicating the issue for the Spanish authorities was the fact that the film was nominated to represent Spain at Cannes where it won the Palm D'Or. In the aftermath of the success of the film at Cannes, the head of the Spanish film bureau was dismissed, and the film was banned from Spanish cinemas

Falstaff : (Chimes at midnight) by Orson Welles( Visual )

16 editions published between 1988 and 2018 in English and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The crowning achievement of Orson Welles's extraordinary cinematic career, Chimes at Midnight was the culmination of the filmmaker's lifelong obsession with Shakespeare's ultimate rapscallion, Sir John Falstaff. Usually a comic supporting figure, Falstaff - the loyal, often soused friend of King Henry IV's wayward son Prince Hal - here becomes the focus: a robustly funny and ultimately tragic screen antihero played by Welles with looming, lumbering grace. Integrating elements from both Henry IV plays as well as Richard II, Henry V, and The Merry Wives of Windsor, Welles created a gritty and unorthodox Shakespeare film as a lament, he said, "for the death of Merrie England." Poetic, philosophical, and visceral - with a kinetic centerpiece battle sequence that rivals anything in the director's body of work - Chimes at Midnight is as monumental as the figure at its heart."--Container
