UN CHIEN ANDALOU :)

This movie is almost any interpretation can be drawn from the images shown. Perhaps every single scene is random and unconcerned with any other, although the director certainly seems to have included items which are present throughout the film. In some ways the repeated glimpses of these things in situations where they shouldn’t be adds to the confused feel, enhanced by the disgusting and nonsensical time-markers deployed.

A movie like this is a tonic and surrealism type. It assaults old and unconscious habits of movie going. It is disturbing, frustrating, maddening. It seems without purpose.

The eternal life themes of life, death, lust and love are thrown up at various points, this is of no  consequences though the directors has already hurried onto the next sequence, violently cutting so that the desired woman becomes naked in a flash. A picture of what is ardent suitor really sees. This movie does not require such deep analysis though, being much more a film which should be purely experienced. It achieves that which the directors aimed for.
