Stranger Says: If you have seen Luis Buñuel’s 1967 film about a beautiful but bored bourgeois housewife, Séverine Serizy (Catherine Deneuve), who suddenly and secretly becomes a prostitute and has all of her predictable fantasies fulfilled by rough and ready strangers, there is no need to watch it ever gain. But if you have not seen Belle De Jour, you must attend this screening. I do not like Buñuel (too much Freud and not enough Marx in his work), but as a lover of the art of Plato’s cave, I cannot ignore his most acclaimed films. And this is certainly one of them.
