If you are interested in Surrealism or Dadaism, then you must watch this movie for its thematic and intellectual ambitions. That being said, it is a horribly amateurish jumble of shots and tableaus. The dissonance arises from the extreme craft and formal rigor of centuries of technical development displayed in the paintings of Dali, Tanguy, Ernst, Magritte and others, contrasting with the relatively new experiments with film in L’Âge d’Or. Throwing a toy giraffe out a window is not a devasting critique of bourgeois values in my book. See Man with a Movie Camera if you want to see a much more accomplished experimentation of form and content.
