Luis Buñuel

He still has a blind man’s reflexes and is not yet accustomed to his new situation. Besides, he doesn’t know what a ditch or a hole looks like.
— Luis Buñuel, quoted in Spenger, The biblical world of Luis Buñuel

Bergman is the only major director whose actual work is inferior to the lampoons of it (for example, Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life).
— Spengler, ibid.
