Surrealistic Sunday

Un Chien Andalou (English: An Andalusian Dog) is a 16-minute surrealist film made in France in 1928 by Spanish writer/directors Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dalí, and released in 1929 in Paris. It is one of the best-known surrealist films of the French avant-garde film movement of the 1920s. It is also considered one of the most prominent films in Spanish Surrealism. It stars Simone Mareuil and Pierre Batcheff as the unnamed protagonists.

  1. Ugh. This is so not my cup of tea. More like a cup of vinegar, or twisted turpentine. Like a recorded nightmare, which everyone now can live through. No thanks.

    But I derive zero pleasure from any kind of horror writing (except some Poe) - so I guess I might be well out of the center of the spectrum on this.

  3. I adore this, it was a formative film for me, something that was first shared with me in high school and has been with me since.

    And I really want that doorbell.

  4. Crazy stuff, children. :-)

    It is supposed to be troubling and for that time, it must have been considered subversive. I actually don't know a lot about surrealistic film. More about the art. I recently discovered an a woman surrealist who was a book binder. Interesting stuff.
