The Phantom of Liberty / Le fantôme de la liberté

May 23 | Thu | 4PM |
View Website

Luis Buñuel and Jean-Claude Carrière's absurdist parables, paradoxes, and comic inversions come fast and furious in The Phantom of Liberty: the tableau vivant of Goya's revolutionary painting The Third of May 1808, which proclaimed a modern age of resistance and terror; the little girl who hides in plain sight; the society dinner table as public toilet; the pornographic postcards of famous European monuments. In this runic and anarchical fever dream, unlike any since Buñuel's own surrealist 1930 masterpiece L'Age d'or, the film's all-star cast of Monica Vitti, Michel Piccoli, Jean-Claude Brialy, and company find themselves prisoners of their own making.
