It's worth getting the blu-ray instead of the out-of-print Criterion DVD because of the much better picture (the Criterion DVD had a disappointing picture) and extras, though I hate the menus on this blu-ray. There's cheesy music playing during the menu that isn't even from the film. Aesthetically, the Criterion DVD is better as far as the packaging and menus go. This blu-ray wins because of the picture. The bonus interviews are excellent as well.

Oh, you devilish French people! What with all of your obsession with, well, obsession! Men and women constantly throwing themselves at one another! Sex, sultry sex, and more sensational sensual sex! How refreshing it is to come across a slightly older classic that shows not all of you - young or old - are constantly happily copulating with one another twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week! How delightful it is to discover that those rare few of you are doing little more than emotionally torturing the one you presumably love, once and for all proving that the rest of us may very well have a chance to stand toe-to-toe with you in matters of carnal conquest and rejection!

(Not that there's anything wrong with it ...)

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and characters. If you're the kind of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I'd encourage you to skip down to the last two paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you're accepting of a few modest hints at `things to come,' then read on ...)

THAT OBSCURE OBJECT OF DESIRE is the story of an older man named Mathieu (played by Fernando Rey) who becomes smitten with his new maid-servant, Conchita (played in alternating appearances by two actresses: Carole Bouquet and Angela Molina). Initially, she spurns his advances - even runs from his affections - only causing the man to be increasingly captivated by her. As their relationship grows (or does it?), the two continue a bizarre mating game, one that borders the lands of faithlessness and self-destruction, until there's nothing left for a possible happy union.

For me, this movie is about the inability of men and women to understand one another, and especially how mysterious and capricious women seem to some men. I believe the lead actress switches back and forth to demonstrate just how unknowable this woman is for Fernando Rey, so unknowable that she is an entirely different woman from scene to scene and day to day. One of Bunuel's finest efforts.

"That Obscure Object of Desire" (1977) was the last movie Luis Bunuel directed, and it's a good one with Bunuel using two actresses to play the same female character. The transfer is crystal clear, and was apparently remastered by Studio Canal/Lionsgate. There are lots of extras, including interviews with Jean-Claude Carriere, Carlos Saura, a 37 minute "Lady Doubles" feature that has interviews with Carole Bouquet, and Angela Molina, as well as a 17 minute feature about Luis Bunuel" directed by Dominique Maillet.
