Viridiana

Posted by martinteller on January 17, 2005

Downloaded a bunch of Buñuel this weekend.  Viridiana has all the familiar themes: frustrated lust, religious mockery, foot fetishism, contempt for humanity.  Contempt in spades, I would say — the film is a particularly bitter pill to swallow.  Kind of seems to go nowhere for a while in the middle, but really comes to a head in the end.  Rating: 7
