    When talk about Bunuel I still remember "Los olvidados" dream sequence. There is no space in my mind for this. 4 years 4 months ago

    Luis Buñuel’s final film feels pleasantly familiar, concerning itself with many of his core themes including the horny rich old man chasing after his young muse - in this case a flamenco dancer named Conchita - in a genius move played by two different actresses, sometimes “changing faces” even in the middle of a scene. Their relationship is portrayed as an endless cycle alternating between mutual affection and rejection, once again underscoring Buñuel’s understanding of life and all of human desire as a cosmic joke poking fun at humans endlessly chasing seemingly elusive goals that - if they are, against all odds, achieved - turn out to lead into just another nightmare of unfulfilled desires. 1 month 4 weeks ago
