Three Films by Luis Buñuel

Starring Carole Bouquet, Jean-Pierre Cassel and Fernando Rey

There are no censorship issues with this release.
US: Uncut and MPAA R rated for:
  • 2021 The Criterion Collection (RA) Blu-ray at US Amazon #ad released on 5th January 2021

Promotional Material

More than four decades after he took a razorblade to an eyeball and shocked the world with Un chien andalou, arch-iconoclast Luis Buñuel capped his astonishing career with three final provocations--The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie, The Phantom of Liberty, and That Obscure Object of Desire--in which his renegade, free-associating surrealism reached its audacious, self-detonating endgame. Working with such key collaborators as screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière and his own frequent on-screen alter ego Fernando Rey, Buñuel laced his scathing attacks on religion, class pretension, and moral hypocrisy with savage violence to create a trio of subversive, brutally funny masterpieces that explore the absurd randomness of existence. Among the director's most radical works as well as some of his greatest international triumphs, these films cemented his legacy as cinema's most incendiary revolutionary.

BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES - New high-definition digital restorations of all three films, with uncompressed monaural soundtracks - The Castaway of Providence Street, a 1971 homage to Luis Buñuel made by his longtime friends and fellow filmmakers Arturo Ripstein and Rafael Castanedo - Speaking of Buñuel, a documentary from 2000 on Buñuel's life and work - Once Upon a Time: "The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie," a 2011 television program about the making of the film - Interviews from 2000 with screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière on The Phantom of Liberty and That Obscure Object of Desire - Archival interviews on all three films featuring Carrière; actors Stéphane Audran, Muni, Michel Piccoli, and Fernando Rey; and other key collaborators - Documentary from 1985 about producer Serge Silberman, who worked with Buñuel on five of his final seven films - Analysis of The Phantom of Liberty from 2017 by film scholar Peter William Evans - Lady Doubles, a 2017 documentary featuring actors Carole Bouquet and Ángela Molina, who share the role of Conchita in That Obscure Object of Desire - Portrait of an Impatient Filmmaker, Luis Buñuel, a 2012 short documentary featuring director of photography Edmond Richard and assistant director Pierre Lary - Excerpts from Jacques de Baroncelli's 1929 silent film La femme et le pantin, an adaptation of Pierre Louÿs's 1898 novel of the same name, on which That Obscure Object of Desire is also based - Alternate English-dubbed soundtrack for That Obscure Object of Desire - Trailers - New English subtitle translations - PLUS: Essays by critic Adrian Martin and novelist and critic Gary Indiana, along with interviews with Buñuel by critics José de la Colina and Tomás Pérez Turrent

THE DISCREET CHARM OF THE BOURGEOISIE In Luis Buñuel's deliciously satiric masterpiece, an upper-class sextet sits down to a dinner that is continually delayed, their attempts to eat thwarted by vaudevillian events both actual and imagined, including terrorist attacks, military maneuvers, and ghostly apparitions. Stringing together a discontinuous, digressive series of absurdist set pieces, Buñuel and his screenwriting partner Jean-Claude Carrière send a cast of European-film greats--including Fernando Rey, Stéphane Audran, Delphine Seyrig, and Jean-Pierre Cassel--through a maze of desire deferred, frustrated, and interrupted. The Oscar-winning pinnacle of Buñuel's late-career ascent as a feted maestro of the international art house, The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie is also one of his most gleefully radical assaults on the values of the ruling class.

THE PHANTOM OF LIBERTY Luis Buñuel's vision of the inherent absurdity of human social rituals reaches its taboo-annihilating extreme in what may be his most morally subversive and formally audacious work. Zigzagging across time and space, from the Napoleonic era to the present day, The Phantom of Liberty unfolds as a picaresque, its main character traveling between tableaux in a series of Dadaist non sequiturs. Unbound by the laws of narrative logic, Buñuel lets his surrealist's id run riot in an exuberant revolt against bourgeois rationality that seems telegraphed directly from his unconscious to the screen.

THAT OBSCURE OBJECT OF DESIRE Luis Buñuel's final film brings full circle the director's lifelong preoccupation with the darker side of desire. Buñuel regular Fernando Rey plays Mathieu, an urbane widower, tortured by his lust for the elusive Conchita. With subversive flair, Buñuel uses two different actors in the latter role--Carole Bouquet, a sophisticated French beauty, and Ángela Molina, a Spanish coquette. Drawn from the surrealist favorite Pierre Louÿs's classic erotic novel La femme et le pantin (The Woman and the Puppet, 1898), That Obscure Object of Desire is a dizzying game of sexual politics punctuated by a terror that harks back to Buñuel's avant-garde beginnings.

28 Days Later meets The Blair Witch Project as a mysterious virus turns the inhabitants of an apartment building into a horde of frenzied, bloodthirsty ghouls in [REC] - the original 2007 found footage phenomenon that spawned a hit franchise and US remake.

A television film crew, documenting the night shift of a Barcelona fire brigade, get much more than they bargained for when they attend an apparently routine call-out. Upon arrival at an inner city apartment, the firefighters are viciously attacked by the elderly female occupant, who appears to be in the throes of some sort of viral infection. Before long, the virus has taken hold of the entire building, which is cordoned off by the authorities. Trapped inside, the television crew - using their cameras to capture the events as they unfold - and the other remaining survivors find themselves pitched into a nightmare of unimaginable proportions.

Fusing the zombie genre with the found footage format to throw the audience right into the midst of the action, [REC] is a terrifying, relentless rollercoaster ride which builds to one of the horror genre s all time bone-chilling climaxes.

    Promotional Material

    Patriot Films and Signal One Entertainment presents Erik the Viking. Monty Python alumnus Terry Jones' fast-paced, visually lavish comic fantasy starring Tim Robbins (The Shawshank Redemption) as the reluctant marauder. Presented in a deluxe special edition, featuring a wealth of extras, and two unique cuts of the film.

    A Viking with a conscience, Erik tires of pillaging and decides to set out on a quest. When the wise Freya informs Erik that a great mythic wolf has eaten the sun, the warrior resolves to venture to Asgard, home of the Norse gods, to set things right. Before Erik can reach Asgard, he and his allies must first find a magical horn that resides in the land of King Arnulf, who, luckily for the hero, has a lovely daughter, Princess Aud.

    Monty Python's Terry Jones wrote and directed this madcap fantasy (inspired by his own children s book), and the eclectic cast reunites him with fellow Python John Cleese, as well as legends Mickey Rooney and Eartha Kitt. Just as much of the humor of Erik stems from the anachronisms of old Norse mythological figures reacting to adventures with a modern wit, the film of Erik also seems wonderfully out of time -- an anarchic, surreal, wild, 1970s-styled comic adventure arriving at the tail end of the 1980s. Jones continued to experiment with the film after its release, so we are presenting the original international theatrical cut here, along with the new version created by Jones and his son.

    Brand New Extras:

    • Original Theatrical Release Cut in HD (103 minutes/99 minutes in PAL)

A terrifyingly twisting meta-slasher film within a film within a film, that'll keep you guessing until the shocking, horrific conclusion.

    • See review from flickeringmyth.com : " Based on the transgressive novel by J.G. Ballard, has David Cronenberg's fingerprints all over it "
    • See review from theguardian.com : " The controversy surrounding the original release of this dark exploration of sexy car accidents now seems quaintly outdated -- but the film holds up well "

    Promotional Material

    Technology and sexuality meet in a head-on collision in Crash director David Cronenberg s controversial adaptation of writer J.G. Ballard s hugely transgressive 1973 novel starring James Spader and Holly Hunter.

    Spader stars as James Ballard, an advertising executive whose deviant sexual desires are awakened by a near fatal automobile accident with Dr Helen Remington (Hunter). Soon the pair, alongside Ballard s wife Catherine (Deborah Kara Unger), are drawn into an underground world of car crash fetishism presided over by renegade scientist Vaughan (Elias Koteas). Danger, sex and death become entwined as eroticism and technology join together in a disturbing, deadly union.

    Awarded the Special Jury Prize at the 1996 Cannes Film Festival for originality, daring and audacity, Crash remains an incredibly subversive and confrontational piece of cinema Cronenberg himself describes it as a dangerous film now newly refurbished in a stunning 4K restoration.

    SINS OF THE FLESH - A story of sex without love, from the director of PUSSY TALK!

    Benoît Landrieux, the idle and depraved son of a rich industrialist has two chance encounters on the same day that will change his life forever - Jean-Pierre, a young tearaway who is trying to steal his car, and Isabelle, 20 years old, whom he saves from being raped by her stepfather. Benoît is a coward and a voyeur who gets his kicks from watching other couples make out. He cajoles his two new companions to attempt what he has never dared do - rob the safe in his father's factory, seduce his stepmother to blackmail her for money and finally go so far as committing murder. Thus begins a wild ride that takes them to the very edge of madness.

    Director Claude Mulot made this film under the pseudonym of Frédéric Lansac, the name of a character from his previous horror hit THE BLOOD ROSE. SINS OF THE FLESH marks the start of his transition from softcore films to full on hard core which was confirmed by his next release, PUSSY TALK - one of the most controversial French films of all time. But SINS OF THE FLESH also shows Mulot's background in horror cinema. He presents Benoît as a cunning and complex psychopath, a man who smiles and wears expensive clothes, while inside lurks a monster. The film stars Jess Franco favorite Anne Libert (EROTIC RITES OF FRANKENSTEIN) and comes in a brand new 4k restoration with a host of original extra features.

    SEVEN WOMEN FOR SATAN - A wild psychedelic nightmare of love, lust and damnation!

    By day a mild-mannered businessman, in his dreams Boris Zaroff hunts naked females on his country estates, just like his notorious father. One weekend, two visitors arrive at Boris's castle. The young girl is fascinated by tales of the wicked Zaroffs and asks if she can see their famous torture chamber. Maybe now the Zaroff's dreams can become reality once more.

    SEVEN WOMEN FOR SATAN, originally titled THE WICKED WEEKENDS OF COUNT ZAROFF is a stylish and erotic horror film that was actually banned in France in the 1970s. Severely cut from its original running time and more or less forgotten for decades, the film now reaches Blu-ray in a stunningly restored new version created from the original negative.

    Complete with a host of extras and with many deleted and alternate scenes, this release shows the film, for the first time, in the form its maker intended. An extended version restores the film closer to its original running time and a nearly hour-long interview with cast member and assistant director Robert de Laroche gives a hugely entertaining and insightful view into the making of the film, and the life and work of its creator Michel Lemoine.

    Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of The Godfather: Part III, director/screenwriter Francis Ford Coppola brings a definitive new edit and restoration of the final film in his epic Godfather trilogy--Mario Puzo's THE GODFATHER, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone. Michael Corleone (Al Pacino), now in his 60s, seeks to free his family from crime and find a suitable successor to his empire. That successor could be fiery Vincent (Andy Garcia)... but he may also be the spark that turns Michael's hope of business legitimacy into an inferno of mob violence. The film's meticulously restored picture and sound, under the supervision of American Zoetrope and Paramount Pictures, includes a new beginning and ending, as well as changes to scenes, shots, and music cues. The resulting project reflects author Mario Puzo and Coppola's original intentions of The Godfather: Part III, and delivers, in the words of Coppola, "a more appropriate conclusion to The Godfather and The Godfather: Part II."

    The US Theatrical Version was cut for violence to address viewer antipathy for pre-release screenings. These cuts were not applied to the International Release. A few years later the film was revised in response to this success of a bootleg workprint sold as a Director's Cut. The tacky happy ending was removed along with the film noir commentary to create the 1992 Director's Cut, but the cut violence was not restored. Finally the cut violence was restored to the Director's Cut to create the truly uncut, 2007 version called the Final Cut.

    The visionary first film from George Lucas in a director's cut A chilling exploration of the future is also a compelling examination of the present in George Lucas's THX 1138, starring Robert Duvall as a man whose mind and body are controlled by the government. THX makes a harrowing attempt to escape from a world where thoughts are controlled, freedom is an impossibility and love is the ultimate crime. "The real excitement of THX 1138 is not really the message but the medium -- the use of film not to tell a story so much as to convey an experience. Stunning...dazzling...chilling and terribly powerful" (Charles Champlin, Los Angeles Times).

    Giuseppe Tornatore cut his original version after it proved a flop at the Italian box office. The resulting shorter Theatrical Version premiered at Cannes was however a big hit leading to the eventual re-release of the original version now tagged as the Special Edition or Director's Cut. The Theatrical Version was initially BBFC PG rated but this was raised to 12/12A in 2020. The Director's Cut is BBFC 15 rated.

    A relentless one-of-a-kind sensory assault chock-full of hyper-kinetic fight scenes, gangster shootouts, sword-slashing violence and gory zombie horror, Versus was a key title amongst the barrage of innovative horror and action movies that appeared as if from nowhere from Japan at the turn of the millennium, leading to a new wave of appreciation for Asian extreme cinema.

    A mysterious face-off in a wooded clearing between two escaped convicts and a carload of sharply dressed yakuza holding a beautiful woman captive ends in hails of bullets and showers of blood. The location for this violent encounter is the mythic Forest of Resurrection, the site of the 444th portal of the 666 hidden gates that link this earthly domain to the netherworld and it didn t get this name for nothing. As one of the surviving prisoners escapes with the girl into the darkness of the forest, disgruntled gangsters soon become the least of their worries as an earlier battle between a lone warrior against hordes of zombie samurai is carried over from a millennium ago into the present day

    Versus caused a sensation both in Japan and internationally upon its release, launching the careers of director Ryûhei Kitamura (Godzilla Final Wars, Midnight Meat Train) and action star and fight choreographer Tak Sakaguchi (Battlefield Baseball, Yakuza Weapon). Arrow Video is proud to present this mythic cult title in both its original 2000 and expanded 2004 Ultimate Versus iterations, in a brand new, director-approved restoration.

    Starring Jet Li as the real life Cantonese folk hero, Wong Fei-hung, a physical embodiment of traditional Chinese values and moral incorruptibility, the Once Upon a Time in China series is a martial arts epic that charts China s transition into the modern-world as it gradually abandons its old traditions and begins to accept the inevitable encroach of Western cultures.

    Once Upon a Time in China In 19th century Canton, Wong Fei-hung battles ruthless imperialist forces determined to subjugate his country and enslave his people, leading to a climactic fight sequence still regarded as one of the best ever filmed.

    Once Upon a Time in China II Wong Fei-hung faces off against the White Lotus Cult, a dangerous xenophobic group seeking to drive all European influence out of China, as well as a corrupt military officer, played by Donnie Yen in his breakthrough role.

    Once Upon a Time in China III Wong Fei-hung travels to Peking and is forced to enter a martial-arts contest in order to prevent an assassination attempt against a prominent Chinese diplomat who wants to showcase traditional Chinese martial-arts, and restore national pride.

    With action sequences choreographed by the legendary Yuen Woo-ping, the Once Upon a Time in China series is a glorious high-point in martial-arts filmmaking, and Eureka Classics is proud to present Tsui Hark s original trilogy, as well as Once Upon a Time in China and America (which saw Jet Li return to the Wong Fei-hung role after a four-year gap).
