About this product
- DescriptionA provocative memoir from Luis Bunuel, the Academy Award winning creator of some of modern cinema's most important films, from <i>Un Chien Andalou</i> to <i>The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie</i>. Luis Bunuel s films have the power to shock, inspire, and reinvent our world. Now, in a memoir that carries all the surrealism and subversion of his cinema, Bunuel turns his artistic gaze inward. In swift and generous prose, Bunuel traces the surprising contours of his life, from the Good Friday drumbeats of his childhood to the dreams that inspired his most famous films to his turbulent friendships with Federico Garcia Lorca and Salvador Dali. His personal narratives also encompass the pressing political issues of his time, many of which still haunt us today the specter of fascism, the culture wars, the nuclear bomb. Filled with film trivia, framed by Bunuel s intellect and wit, this is essential reading for fans of cinema and for anyone who has ever wanted to see the world through a surrealist s eyes.
