A creative exploration of the boundaries of cinema

An unexplainable, avant-garde experimental surrealistic curio, Un Chien Andalou was born from a collaboration of filmmaker Luis Buñuel and surreal Spanish artist Salvador Dalí. To this day, the jarring narrative form of Un Chien Andalou makes this picture as much a staple in film studies classes as Citizen Kane, and it has proved very influential to filmmakers over the years (David Lynch, anyone... read more

It's hard to write a review on a movie which only runs for 16 minutes. It's supposed to be easy but it isn't, not especially when Salvador Dali is involved. Nothing involving him can be easily translated or interpreted. Have you ever read Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince? Then you will remember a powerful love potion being mentioned "Amortentia" which "smells differently to each person"... so,... read more

Luis Bunuel, even in his narrative features like Belle de Jour, preferred to view things through a dream-like prism. Think of how much of Belle de Jour’s narrative is occupied within the interior fantasy life and memories of its main character. Numerous things happen with no true “logic” to dictate them, and this is a thread that can be followed back to his first work Un Chien Andalou.

In a dream-like sequence, a woman's eye is slit open--juxtaposed with a similarly shaped cloud obsucuring the moon moving in the same direction as the knife through the eye--to grab the audience's attention. The French phrase "ants in the palms," (which means that someone is "itching" to kill) is shown literally. A man pulls a piano along with the tablets of the Ten Commandments and a dead donkey towards the woman he's itching to kill. A shot of differently striped objects is repeatedly used to connect scenes.

" Notes: To be honest, it has been ages since I have seen this flick and I should probably re-watch it at some point. Anyway, it is probably the most famous surrealist movie ever made. Indeed, if the combination of Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dali sounded awesome on paper, these guys didn’t disappoint and they definitely delivered one of the weirdest movies ever made.

"4/4/17 Luis Brunel and Salvador Dali's now infamous surreal film which sees a series of images but their meaning is deliberately obscure. Legendary for its scene of a woman having her eye slit by a razor, while other scenes are there to shock and disturb (a dead horse on a piano, a man with a hole in his hand filled with ants). Bizarre but unforgettable."
