Buñuel

MUBI Special

We are honoring the man who extended Surrealism through five decades of the 20th century with his wry, darkly satiric dramas of the hypocrisies of the moneyed classes: Luis Buñuel. We’re showing a series of Buñuel’s wonderful final films made at the height of his fame.

The Milky Way

Luis Buñuel France, 1969

Expired

In case you remain unconvinced of Luis Buñuel’s provocations, we offer one last masterpiece in subversive surrealism from his late career. The Milky Way once again assembles a stellar ensemble cast to take aim at the legacy of organized religion through an array of unforgettable comedic scenarios.

The Phantom of Liberty

Luis Buñuel France, 1974

Expired

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.

Diary of a Chambermaid

Luis Buñuel France, 1964

Expired

Jean Renoir took his turn (in Hollywood!) adapting Octave Mirbeau’s great novel, but Buñuel made the definitive (and deliciously provocative) version—a truly wicked satire. Jeanne Moreau is unforgettable as the maid whose presence reveals the dark currents of politics and desire in the countryside.

That Obscure Object of Desire

Luis Buñuel France, 1977

Expired

Today is the birthday of the man who extended Surrealism through five decades of the 20th century with his wry, darkly satiric dramas of the hypocrisies of the moneyed classes. We’re showing a series of Buñuel’s wonderful final films made at the height of his fame, beginning at the very wicked end.
