In a need to fix a grave wrong, the fact that I have seen zero Luis Bunuel films, I started my adventure with his 1961 effort Viridiana. It seems, to me at least, that I picked a great place to start. Despite the controversy that the film can incur, Viridiana is a fantastic and thought provoking film filled with great symbolism and a fast moving story. The film involves a young woman, about to become a nun, who makes a trip to visit her Uncle in the country. From there on out the film shifts to a wild, often shocking, series of events as the woman is pushed to her limit. The camera work here is wonderful, as is the art direction as seen in the great setting of the Uncle’s house. IN the end the film may not be for everyone, it’s certainly a provoking film, but if you lead in with an open mind you’ll find a rewarding and vibrant film.
