    I liked it a lot. Very funny, lots of dark humor. I met the director at a screening of the movie at the Portage theater.

    Tristana is pretty baffling, no?

    • michaelgloversmith

      I don’t know if it’s any more baffling than any of Bunuel’s other work. I would say, however, that it might be his most quintessentially Spanish film. I think the genesis of it must have been him wondering what would’ve happened if the Fernando Rey character in Viridiana hadn’t committed suicide. The character dynamics are very similar in both.

      There’s a gorgeous new Blu-ray of it from a new distributor named Cohen Media Group. I can’t wait to watch it again with the audio commentary (by Deneuve and, my favorite living American critic, Kent Jones).

        Very interesting. I need to see both Viridiana and Tristana again soon. Recently watched The Exterminating Angel and Simon Of The Desert and was baffled but supremely entertained by both. The one that means the most to me is The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie – hence the name of my blog!

        Discreet Charm is probably my second favorite (after Viridiana). That man made more great films than you can shake a stick at though.
