The Phantom of Liberty

Le fantôme de la liberté

Directed by Luis Buñuel
France, Italy, 1974
Comedy, Drama, Avant-Garde

Bourgeois convention is demolished in Luis Buñuel’s surrealist gem The Phantom of Liberty. Featuring an elegant soir#e with guests seated at toilet bowls, poker-playing monks using religious medals as chips, and police officers looking for a missing girl who is right under their noses…

Our take

Following his Oscar win for The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie, Buñuel landed his biggest production—which birthed one of his most incendiary films of subversive hilarity. A seemingly endless cast of international stars rounds out this cinematic reckoning with the absurdity of modern existence.
