THAT OBSCURE OBJECT OF DESIRE
CET OBSCUR OBJET DU DÉSIR
1977, Rialto Pictures, 102 min, France, Spain, Dir: Luis Buñuel

The acclaimed final film from director Luis Buñuel stars Fernando Rey as a wealthy older man who fruitlessly pursues a beautiful dancer (played by both Carole Bouquet and Angela Molina) during a terrorist insurgency. In French and Spanish with English subtitles.


THE PRICE OF POWER
IL PREZZO DEL POTERE
1969, 108 min, Italy, Dir: Tonino Valerii

In Dallas, as a liberal, anti-racist president cavalcades through the town, violence breaks out, with an alleged assassin shot down during a prison transfer. 1963? JFK? No, it’s 1881 and Van Johnson’s President Garfield, with Fernando Rey leading the conspirators. In Italian with English subtitles. Not available on DVD.


COMPANEROS
VAMOS A MATAR, COMPANEROS
1970, 118 min, Italy, Dir: Sergio Corbucci

Electrifying showdown between greats Franco Nero and Tomas Milian begins, but so does the flashback: Swedish gunrunner Nero has a trainload of arms, with his payoff locked in a safe that only pacifist rebel leader rival Fernando Rey can open. But joint-puffing Jack Palance and his flesh-loving falcon bear a grudge. In Italian with English subtitles.
