Sample text

Buñuel is perplexed by this notional plot of El ángel exterminador: “But why can’t they leave? ” “Don’t worry,” Allen has Gil respond, “you’ll get it. ” If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Allen stealing and giving back this idea as his own is a heartfelt and humorous monument to a filmmaker who would surely have relished the joke. Discretion and Desire In the influence of Surrealism on anarchists in general and the Situationist International movement in particular, Buñuel was relevant to the riots in Paris and elsewhere in 1968, which, in turn, reoriented him away from the bourgeois lifestyle that was close to claiming him.

In 1946 he was invited to adapt Lorca’s La casa de Bernarda Alba (The House of Bernarda Alba) for a film to be made in Mexico. Although the film was never made, he took his young family to Mexico, where he would establish an Aragonese home from home. As dual nationality was not possible, he relinquished his Spanish passport and acquired Mexican nationality in 1949. Undeterred from a Introduction 15 career in film, he began to progress through the flourishing Mexican film industry and made 20 of his 36 films in Mexico, most of which are known as películas alimenticias (fodder or bread-and-butter films).

The satire that characterizes several emerging European filmmakers of the 1960s is clearly influenced by the films of Buñuel but also, in their youthful, boiling passions and desire for revolution, frustrated by his long-term, eternally simmering campaign against bourgeois complacency and arrogance. The films of Godard provide numerous moments of potentially surrealist subversive disruptions, whether playfully incongruous as in Une femme est une femme (A Woman Is a Woman, 1963) or furiously satirical as in Week-End (Weekend, 1968) in which a middle-class couple’s attempts to leave Paris are stymied by an excruciating, tenminute sequence of a traffic jam that ends with the frustrated couple accelerating past the eventual reveal of a gruesome accident.
