Alex Gibney on Luis Buñuel:

“What’s great about the way Buñuel treats his actors is he puts them in these ridiculous situations and then always asks them to act as if they don’t think the situations are ridiculous at all. He shoots them from a medium distance, rarely shooting them in close-up, which has a tense, but sometimes partly comic effect. You know, you never shoot comedy in close-up.”
