Luis Bunuel

Luis Bunuel is a  well known director, well not for the average audiences, but if you take an interest in Cinema then you would have heard of him, and after a while you'll probably get around to some of his films.Well, that's what happened to me anyway...
Seeing as I only recently became interested in Bunuel's work, I have yet too see many of his films as he was quite a prolific director.
But here are my thoughts on the few I have seen, and I hope that if you aren't familiar with his work you'll be interested in it after reading my thoughts on a handful of his films.

Napoleon (1927)

Finally after much searching I have found a version of Abel Gance's 1927 masterpiece, Napoleon.
I was expecting a lot, as I had heard many great things about this film and was anxious to see it, I felt that my education in film would be incomplete if I didn't.

All I can say is that this film greatly impressed me, as a film buff and as an admirer of Napoleon.

So here are my thoughts on this magnificent film as well as the many reasons you should see it.
