Luis Bunuel

Written by Joe D on April 26th, 2021

Here is a great documentary about the iconoclastic filmmaker Luis Bunuel. A very complicted person and artist. He set out to shock people especially with his first films, Un Chien Andalou and L’Age D’Or. They caused terrific scandals when they premiered. L’Age D’Or was banned, the negative was seized and burned. It only survived because a print was smuggled out of France and buried. Is it still possible to shock people today? Not like it was then. Anyway enjoy this glimpse into Bunuel’s world.

Here is a clip of the great synth band Tangerine Dream playing at Coventry Cathedral. They really made a big impact and did a lot of film scores as well. Including the score for a great film, William Friedkin’s Sorcere. My pal Bud Smith edited the film and also edited the trailer to their music. Sorcerer based on Clouzout’s Wages Of Fear. another great movie worth checking out. Check it out.
