La voie lactée

Luis Buñuel France, 1969

Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film The Milky Way

Uneven and ultimately unsatisfying religious satire from Luis Bunuel. There are only a handful of clever absurdist moments, but mostly it's just slow-paced and blandly talky, and not particularly funny or profound. Maybe it has greater impact if you come from a Catholic background, but it was lost on me - maybe I just didn't get it.
