5.0 out of 5 stars unmatched April 9, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
The only time I saw this was in an empty theatre on a Wednesday afternoon in New York when it was first released. I'd never seen Bunuel, so I had no preconceptions. (It was the second bill on some Orson Welles film I went to see and promptly forgot.) I left the theatre disappointed only to find myself thinking about all the next day. I reacted to most of his films that way< which is a sign of depth. This short, one two punch is his best film.

4.0 out of 5 stars I see the Good in this picture July 24, 2008
By BigStan
Format:VHS Tape
There is much interesting and I found goodness in the picture. The character Simon is wonderfully played. He is taken away by the temptingly beautiful Satan to a sixties rock nightclub. Even though seated at a table it is as if he is still on the column in the desert. He is still aloof from the surrounding world. How interesting it is though we do not see him look up to heaven and pray to God while in the club. While the director may be mocking the mysticism of Christianity in the end he has embraced it for all the clutter of the world has certainly effected good Simon as he is not speaking with God by prayer. As for the Dr.'s review who says that Simon is smoking a cigarette in the club the Dr. better watch the movie again. Simon is smoking a pipe. A truly more gentlemanly way of enjoying the bad habit of smoking. All in all the coarseness of the other characters did not bother me but emphasized the goodness and holiness of Simon. It is interesting that Satan is portrayed as a seductive woman. An echo of the blame on Eve perhaps? As far a blasphemies ... isn't that one other thing Satan is good at? Enjoy the movie and learn. Withdraw and pray in secret to God. Thank you.
