Back from a brief vacation…

“In any society, the artist has a responsibility. His effectiveness is certainly limited and a painter or writer cannot change the world. But they can keep an essential margin of non-conformity alive. Thanks to them the powerful can never affirm that everyone agrees with their acts. That small difference is important.” – Luis Bunuel.

Flickhead has officially launched the week-long Luis Bunuel Blog-a-Thon!

In addition to links from all of the contributors who have participated (including himself), Flickhead has a Bunuel poster gallery, links to worthy books and DVDs regarding the master director, and several terrific photos available on his site. (Dig, if you will, these two.)

Bunuel has lately been a fascination of mine, one I’ve come to late in the game, so I look forward to digging through all the links Flickhead will undoubtedly accrue over the next few days. I hope to contribute myself in some small way, but if I can’t, then at least I will have been one of the many fingers pointing the way toward this celebration of one of cinema’s most enduring and wickedly funny legacies.

Thanks for the plug!

By all means, join in! The one helpful thing about Buñuel is that his films are packed with things to write about.

Welcome back Dennis.

Sounds fascinating. Looking forward to an eye opening Bunuel education by Flickhead and yourself.
