La voie lactée

Luis Buñuel France, 1969

ramosbarajas's rating of the film The Milky Way

Yes, it's educational. Buñuel's lesson in Catholicism, pointing out the flaws- or dogmas- they are expected to believe. It's a concept that works in some parts and doesn't in others. It may be the weakest film from his late period. Overall, It lacks comedy and charm, and it is too dry to work well with the range of audiences his other films have. Only the most intellectual (catholic) ones could appreciate it.
