The Milky Way (1969) is a deliciously surreal comedy from the master Luis Buñuel (Belle de Jour, The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie). Inspired by the picaresque Spanish novels of the sixteenth century, it follows two men (Laurent Terzieff and Paul Frankeur), part tramp, part pilgrim, who are on their way to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. On their way they meet a whole assortment of people—some truculent, some violent, and some bizarre; they experience many adventures—some mysterious, some erotic, some even supernatural...a religious odyssey as only Buñuel could conceive.


Blu-ray Extras Include:

Audio commentary by film critic Nick Pinkerton | Booklet essay by film critic Adam Nayman | Interview with writer Jean-Claude Carrière | Critical analysis by Professor Peter W. Evans | Trailers
