Thanks, Dallas. B. is only my second fave. The first is S. M. Eisenstein.

It's entirely possible you forgot it because Buñuel is often illogical and "Brechtian" in the way that he constructs his films: anything can and often does happen, the non sequitur being a particularly useful tool to a surrealist. You do remember the opening sequence where Laurent Terzieff and a friend are hitching a ride to Compostela and a fellow pilgrim picks them up. They get into the back seat and start bitching about this and that, blaspheming, using the "Lord's" name in vain, &c., and in the next shot, Buñuel shows the driver pulling over to the side and ordering them out. If he wanted to do what Jebus would do, he would be more tolerant of their "sins," but he can only get angry. The snippet with the "beard" joke is later on. Buñuel loves stories within stories, gratuitious intrusions of this and that, and sidebar comments on the action.

My favorite atheist film is Luis Bunuel's The Milky Way. In my favorite scene, Bunuel imitates one of those cheesy 16mm films we had to sit through at Sunday school, this one showing Jesus in conversation with his mother, Mary. She says, "You know, Jesus, I think you would be soooo much better looking, and you'd be more appealing to crowds if you'd shave off your beard." I always laugh until it hurts.

Yeah, sorry, other projects have been taking up all my time lately, haven't had much time to watch movies. Although I did see both Wall-E and the Ed Norton Hulk film (much better than the Bana vehicle).

Oh boy does this place need a kick in the ass.

It's hard to beat Life of Brian and Dogma for comedies with a little religion in 'em. But for films of any genre, I'd have to say my top three are Before Sunrise, Station Agent, Casablanca, The Graduate, Mighty Aphrodite, Amélie, Dr. Strangelove, Léon... yeah, those three.

Come on in, sit down and talk about your favorite films, features, shorts, documentaries. It's all fair game.
