Object of Desire: Conversations with Luis Bunuel. Edited and translated by Paul Lenti.
by [Film Maker] Colina, Jose de la, Tomas Perez Turrent.
S Fine copy in a Fine dust jacket. This copy is inscribed by the translator Paul Lenti. Mexican film scholars de la Colina and Perez Turrent spent some 50 hours interviewing Bunuel; here they supply transcripts in which his quicksilver wit fairly gleams. Meanwhile de la Colina and Perez Turrent, so earnest and so eager to cite their colleagues that they seem almost to parody their profession, serve as foils. Offering interpretations of Bunuel's work (for example, his decision to cast two actresses in a single role in That Obscure Object of Desire ), they are met with Bunuel's good-natured but staunchly surrealist dismissals. They elicit memorable anecdotes, whose subjects include Salvador and Gala Dali, Louis Aragon and other luminaries of surrealism.
