Cet obscur objet du désir…

bunuel-obscur-objet.jpg  Last night I watched “Cet Obscur Objet du Désir” by Luis Bunuel.  It’s been years since I last saw this film and it was like meeting up with an old friend.  I generally like all of Bunuel’s stuff for the sheer surrealism but also weirdly for the sound effects.  I don’t know how he does it but everyday sounds such as traffic roaring by at the start of “La Voie Lactée” or the simple sound of a man walking on a gravel path and tapping his cane in “Cet Obscur Objet du Désir” have an atmosphere all their own.
