    Please, do not hold back from reissuing all the previously released Buñuel titles on Blu-ray, Especially The Phantom of Liberty. I won't hold it against Criterion for following up Belle de jour with Tristana, however. I'll simply do a backflip and preorder it, as well. Keep them coming!

    Saw this today actually. My first two reasons would be the same, my third would be the real life clashing with the fantasy. Lovely film, and I too would love to see more Buñuel bluray releases!

    Tristana would be great. But how about some early bunuel my choices los olvidados, nazarin,the criminal life of archibaldo de la cruz. The last is my guilty pleasure in the bunuel oeuvre.

    Hear, hear! to all this talk of bluray Buñuel. Dare I suggest a box set? I don't care if you don't have the rights to some of them anymore!

    Buñuel's sense of play delights me. I would like to see all of his films again though this is a favourite.

    For anyone, who is not a Bunuel scholar already, check out the book: The Films of Luis Bunuel:Subjectivity and Desire, by Peter William Evans, Oxford Press. Hopefully, this in depth tome is not out of print.

    You ask for my three reasons. 1. Pierre Clementi. 2. Pierre Clementi. 3. Pierre Clementi (in a Bunuel film!).

    1) Catherine Denevue's timeless beauty. 2) The erotic surrealism. 3) The two endings merging into one to create an ambiguity.

    It would be nice to see a better translation of Sami Swoi or Our Folks. At times through out the film there are no subtitles at all. Also there are miss spellings like hello being mistaken for the Hallo the German word for hello. But no this is not a German film. It's Polish and it's made in 1967. Please Criterion restore this film as best as you can! Also on the back of the version of my case that I have is totally written in Polish except for a little English that it mentions that it's a comedy. Length 80mins. Also here's the version of the film I have so you know which one to restore. http://www.amazon.com/Our-Folks-Waclaw-Kowalski/dp/B000DZC1NG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1343111794&sr=8-1&keywords=sami+swoi Thanks for listening I hope you do restore this one at it's best.

    The first time I saw this movie I had to restart it halfway through. I was too distracted by how beautiful Catherine Deneuve was to read the subtitles.

    I just finally caught up with this one. Deneuve is indeed a beauty (I've seen her before), but in a conventional way. I'd rather look at Isabelle Adjani or Tilda Swinton. I loved the surrealism, but the storyline itself was surprisingly predictable. I knew someone from her regular life would intrude upon her secret life and that soon after, the opposite would happen. Overall, though, I'm glad I saw it, and I wonder if I'll ever get the tinkling bells of the carriage out of my head.

    1. Bunuel's masterful control of cinema. 2. The beautiful photography. 3. The stunning beauty of Deneuve
