Bunuel's "The Phantom of Liberty" (writer Jean-Claude Carriere in person!)

“Buñuel was also a great observer but he taught me how to use the imagination within first. How to look deep down inside ourselves. In any given situation and to take it as far as possible. The key word would be exploration. To explore all the different possibilities.” — Jean-Claude Carrière

“Bourgeois convention is demolished in this surrealist gem. Featuring an elegant soiree 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, this perverse, playfully absurd comedy of non-sequiturs deftly compiles many of the themes that preoccupied Buñuel throughout his career — from the hypocrisy of conventional morality to the arbitrariness of social arrangements” (The Criterion Collection.) Screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière in person!
Dir. Luis Buñuel, 1974, 35mm, 105 min.
