My favorite Buñuel movie, part of an impeccable run of films he made in the 1960s and 1970s. Diary of a Chambermaid is an excellent adaptation of an equally delightfully subversive and radical novel, bringing Buñuel's own spin to the story, focusing on some of the darker parts of the novel. Jeanne Moreau is radiant as ever, and Michel Piccoli makes for a great bumbling and ridiculous aristocratic lecher.
