Belle De Jour [1967] [Criterion] (BLU)

Luis Bunuel



Catherine Deneuve's porcelain perfection hides a cracked interior in the actress’s most iconic role: Séverine, a Paris housewife who begins secretly spending her afternoon hours working in a bordello. This surreal and erotic late-sixties daydream from provocateur for the ages Luis Buñuel isan examination of desire and fetishistic pleasure (its characters’ and its viewers’), as well as a gently absurdist take on contemporary social mores and class divisions. Fantasy and reality commingle in this burst of cinematic transgression, which was one of Buñuel’s biggest hits.
