Luis Buñuel
died at age 83, his obituary in the _New York Times _ called him "an iconoclast, moralist, and revolutionary who was a leader of avant-garde surrealism in his youth and a dominant international movie director half a century later". His first picture —made in the silent era —was called "the most famous short film ever made" by critic Roger Ebert , and his last film —made 48 years later—won him Best Director awards from the National Board of Review and the National Society of Film Critics . Writer Octavio Paz called Buñuel's work "the marriage of the film image to the poetic image, creating a new reality...scandalous and subversive". Often associated with the surrealist movement of the 1920s, Buñuel created films from the 1920s through the 1970s. His work spans two continents, three languages, and an array of genres, including experimental film , documentary , melodrama , satire , musical , erotica , comedy , romance , costume dramas , fantasy , crime film , adventure , and western
