The Discreet Charm Of The Bourgeoisie: A Good One #56

Socialists. Unions. Terrorists. Feminists. War. Drugs. Religion. Selfishness. Corruption. Denial. A widening gap between the rich and the poor. Absurdity.

How very little has changed since Luis Bunuel's masterpiece was released in 1972. Beautifully shot, expertly acted, funny, shocking, surreal, offensive and sublime. I watched it on Netflix Instant Streaming, and it was a wonderful print, probably the restored Criterion version.
