"Luis Bunuel's deliciously satiric masterpiece about social mores and class hypocrisy. Opening with a group of friends arriving on the wrong day for a dinner engagement, so begins a sequence of unexpected and unusual events. In their quest for a lavish feast, the dividing line between reality and dreams becomes unclear for each guest, leading the viewer on an intoxicating journey that at once appears both calculated and careless. A masterpiece of surrealist cinema"--Container

The discreet charm of the bourgeoisie = Le charme discret de la bourgeoisie by Luis Buñuel( Visual )

A group of middle class couples attempts to have dinner are continually thwarted by various external or internal intrusions. At first, the guests arrive only to find out that the invitation is for the next day. When he is not busy creating comic diversions, Bunuel highlights the absurd. While three guests are waiting for their tea, which never arrives, a glum leutenant joins them to recount a gruesome tale from his childhood. It is revealed that the charming ambassador of "Republic of Miranda" is also a drug trafficker, and when he is not busy shooting at a terrorist's puppet toys, he is busy seducing his partner's wife. The film alternates between reality, dreams, and dreams within dreams as the characters unwittingly expose the emptiness that resides behind a facade of bourgeoisie propriety

La Voie Lactée = The Milky Way by Luis Buñuel( Visual )

12 editions published between 1968 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of Buñuel's most vigorous critiques of Catholic doctrine, The Milky Way is a picaresque tale about a pair of scraggly pilgrims who set off from Paris to experience an age old European tradition, the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. In the course of their journey, they traverse not only space, but time, traveling back in history to bear witness to Jesus' speech at the wedding in Cana, as well as remarks by the Virgin Mary about her son's grooming habits. Before the pilgrimage comes to an end, both the Devil himself and the Marquis de Sade make an appearance. Discussions of the articles of faith include the observations of a rural police inspector, whose skepticism about the nature of the Eucharist leads him to conclude, "You'll never convince me that the body of Christ can be enclosed in a piece of bread!"
