This, by the way, was one of the Bunuel films we saw over the weekend. It had just come out on Criterion the week before, so Hal ran out to get it practically on the day of release. We enjoyed it very much; it's sort of in the same style as The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie - a series of loosely-connected vignettes poking fun at the upper middle class. Like La Charme Discret, it doesn't hit you over the head with blatant weirdness, either. Just enough to highlight the absurdity of certain situations or conventions.
