Great Moments in Movie History: The Phantom of Liberty (1974)

It’s Friday, so that means it’s time for another “Great Moments in Movie History (Using Stick Figures)”. My choice this week is one of my very favorite movies ever made- Luis Buñuel’s masterpiece of conceptual surrealism, The Phantom of Liberty (1974). I love every single vignette in the film but the one that made me such a huge fan of the movie was one of the very first. I’m paraphrasing the actual quote from the character, but it’s close enough to make the point about what Buñuel was doing. Enjoy!

  1. Haha brilliant! I love it! This vignette (along with the one with the people sitting on toilets at the dinner table, and the one with the parents who are too ignorant to realize their daughter isn’t missing) is my favourite. Easily one of Bunuel’s best movies, and perhaps his funniest and most daring.

  2. I love this film! The stick figures are perfect! Great work again!

    I love stick figure Friday! I have so many more Bunuel films to see! The library has tons, I just have to find the time. I dig The Phantom of Liberty and I dig it that much more now that it has been immortalized in stick figure form!
