FS Fix: Bunuel #6 - That Obscure Object of Desire / Bunuel Awards

Luis Bunuel's puckish sensibility did not fail him in his old age. For the director's final film - 1977's THAT OBSCURE OBJECT OF DESIRE (made when he was 80) - Bunuel famously cast two actresses in the same role. The conceit allows him to explore some of his favorite themes - obsession, repression, desire, hypocrisy. It's also one of his funniest films. Adam and Josh have that review and wrap-up the marathon with 'Those Obscure Objects of Desire' - the Bunuel Marathon Awards. It's Catherine Deneuve v Jeanne Moreau! Fernando Rey v The Eyeball!

A special 12th anniversary episode of Filmspotting comes later in the week, with the 2017 Filmspotting Madness Selection Special and Adam and Josh's Top 5 Pantheon Contenders.
