Everything is photographed straightforwardly, in cheerful but not bilious color, and seen with documentary-like clarity.
A bit of a poor relation among the magnificent films of Buñuel's late period, but rarely shown and well worth seeing.
His film sustains its rare and delicate balance, dancing on its own needle-point of irony.
Has some laughs mostly at the expense of Catholic dogma.
You can feel the master laughing heartily at his own hijinks, and that takes away all pretension and makes the film interesting.
Though not unanimously considered one of the director's greatest works, The Milky Way may be one of his most poignant explorations of true spirituality ...
describing it somewhat in the vein of teaching a humpback whale how to solve a Rubik's cube
This comical film will make any viewer question his beliefs -- from religious fanatic to rabid atheist.
I doubt such an unrelenting challenge to the Christian faith, in both its substance and its expression, has ever been made in a more easygoing fashion.
More witty than Dogma and more aesthetically refined than the original Bedazzled, the film is affectionately irreverent and adventurous storytelling.
Though highly regarded in some circles, The Milky Way may be the worst film Buñuel ever made; at the very least, it may be his most jaded and inhuman.
Most people will dislike this movie, or at least be bored to tears by it. I enjoyed it.
Two down and out men travel from France to Spain for a pilgrimage, along the way meeting various absurd characters who illustrate historical Christian heresies. A remarkable Surrealist assault on religious dogmatism and hypocrisy, often using the Church's own texts against them, but it's so academic that it sometimes feels like it's all from the head, with no heart involved at all.
This one made little sense to me, Had hard time telling where I was in the film or if I was even watching the same movie at times.
