Un Chien Andalou

There is no review for this diary entry. Add a review?

It would probably be redundant to try and decipher any imposed meaning behind Un Chien Andalou―Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dalí simply compiled a list of their wildest dreams and wrapped it up into one nice meaty short. A short, mind you, that would go on to become the granddaddy of surrealist cinema.

Un Chien Andalou hardly has any rhyme or reason and lacks any tangible sense of a narrative―rather, it presents a series of abstract and loosely connected sequences. Boasting bizarre, daring, and disjointed imagery in an age where such practices were unheard of, Buñuel's film is hard not to admire.
