The Criterion Collection's release of Luis Buñuel's final film, That Obscure Object of Desire, is superb in all ways and is a perfect addition to their other Buñuel discs. The film -- which is based on Pierre Louys' novel and also Jacques de Baroncelli's silent film, La Femme et le Pantin -- is part farce, part romantic comedy of errors, and pure surrealistic playful Buñuel. It's also a film which has continued to cast a spell on other filmmakers including Terry Gilliam, and more importantly, David Lynch's later work, especially Lost Highway. The picture is offered in its proper letterboxed aspect ratio of 1.66:1 (anamorphically enhanced for 16 x 9 TVs) and has been given a French mono soundtrack with optional English subtitles. An English-dubbed soundtrack is also available. The picture looks fantastic and is always sharp and clear. There is occasional graininess in the picture, but overall it's great. The disc also contains a very informative and fascinating video interview with screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière, who was a frequent artistic collaborator with the director. The interview gives the viewer a sense (however brief) of their deep artistic and personal relationship together. Also included on the disc are three excerpts from the 1929 silent film, giving one an idea of how strikingly similar Buñuel's version mirrored the earlier film. The original theatrical trailer (complete with thunderous Wagner music) has also been included, as well as some very nice liner notes and an interview with the director taken from a book about him. A disc well worth picking up.
