Luis Buñuel lived many lives-surrealist, Spanish Civil War propagandist, hedonist, friend of artists and poets, and filmmaker. With surprising candor and wit, Buñuel offers his sometimes scathing opinions on the literati and avant-garde members of his sweeping social circle, including Pablo Picasso, Jorge Luis Borges, Salvador Dalí, and Federico García Lorca. These colorful stories of his nomadic life reveal a man of stunning imagination and influence.Luis Buñuel (1900-1983) was one of the twentieth century's greatest filmmakers. His many credits include Un Chien andalou (1924), which he conceived with Salvador Dalí, and The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie (1972), which won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film.

The man takes us through the remarkable events of his life with pure elegance and wit. Great details about his friendships and collaborations with characters like Dali, Breton, Magritte, Chaplin, etc. Also plenty of his philosophical views, or lack of them, which you can see in most of his films. Plenty of descriptions about every one of his films from Hollywood, Mexico and France. A great artist from the surrealist movement giving his fans one last expression that becomes one of the most entertaining biographies I've ever read.
