Re: 127 - The Exterminating Angel
I have now seen 6 of the 15 films Bunuel has in the top 1000 movies of all time. I've hated and loved none of them. I find that his surreal style is slightly distancing for me and that his observations are more intellectual than emotional.
Don't get me wrong, I liked The Exterminating Angel, but I loved the idea and what he was trying to do. There are some films that draw you in and stay with you and there are others on my journey I am glad that I saw but have little interest in revisiting.
Maybe like Godard I will suddenly appreciate that there is more, I dunno. But so far, it's not happening.
PS - I've seen L'Age D'Or, Belle De Jour, Los Olvidados, and Viridiana
PPS - Next up will be Discrete Charm
