Review of An Andalusian Dog

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, in this case, this film will be seen differently to each and they can shape it in whatever shape they want to. It can be easily viewed on YouTube (come on, it's only 16 minutes long)...

Anyway, to me, at first glance, was a jumble of a mess but, from second viewing onwards, it was like as if watching a dream, The Prisoner style or a hallucination of a LSD-induced college boy. A visionary accomplishment for it's time and still to this day, the greatest mindf*** movie ever made! HA! Take that, Eraserhead!
