When talk about Bunuel I still remember "Los olvidados" dream sequence. There is no space in my mind for this.
I think this is the third best Bunuel. It's not crazy like most of his. I was surprised how much I enjoyed it. I could feel the emotion of the lead actor at the end. It was very powerful in that regard.
Blue Balls: the movie. It's just incredible in the way it dissects the power struggle between man and woman, and reveals it to be too deeply complicated to grasp. You can chuck accusations of misogyny at this thing all you want, they won't stick. Bunuel's ended on a high.
