That Obscure Object of Desire (Blu-ray)

Luis Bunuel's final film explodes with eroticism, bringing full circle the director's lifelong preoccupation with the darker side of desire. Bunuel regular Fernando Rey plays Mathieu, an urbane widower, tortured by his lust for the elusive Conchita. With subversive flare, Bunuel uses two different actresses in the lead - Carole Bouquet, a sophisticated French beauty, and Angela Molina, a Spanish coquette. Drawn from Pierre Louys's 1898 novel, 'La Femme et le Pantin', 'That Obscure Object of Desire' is a dizzying game of sexual politics punctuated by a terror that harkens back to Bunuel's brilliant surrealistic beginnings.
