Every time I sat down to continue watching, I kept being distracted by other things.
Totally fantasious, the never beginning ending meal interrupted by the most strange and thoughfull facts!! Memorable movie! A surrealistic demonstration of the bourgeoisie hypocrisy.
I imagine Bunuel and Carrière conceived of this movie in the comfort of their homes, drinking some refined alcoholic beverage from crystalline tumblers which they refilled after every new genius idea. Each scene is like being told a jokey story that sounds like it's heading towards a punchline but doesn't...not really, but it's strangely funny whilst leaving weird thoughts in your head.
This film is great art because it stays a step ahead of you all the time, which can be annoying but.Bunuel and Carrière make you love it.
