2012 in Film: #74 – The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie

I Like Things That Look Like Mistakes

2012 in Film: #74

The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie (1972) | Directed by Luis Buñuel

Grade: B

Thoughts: A film that viciously satirizes the upper class, it often feels like it’s about these self centered, self interested, corrupt, perverted aristocrats that do whatever the hell they want and never think of the consequences.  Buñuel’s surrealist style definitely takes a while to get used to, especially if you’re unfamiliar with his work. And if you’re not used to that style, it doesn’t really flow cohesively for you. His thesis is obvious at the start, and maybe it’s that self satisfied smirk he has when he knows he’s toying with logic and all the boundaries of coherency, but there are parts that are amusing and good, and others that just seem rather self indulgent.
