Un chien andalou
"A film is like an involuntary imitation of a dream." So said Luis Bunuel in his essay "Mysteries of Cinema," and his philosophy came to life in this surrealist masterpiece, a collaboration with artist Salvador Dali. It became infamous for its early depiction of gore in a gruesome eyeball slicing scene. To try to make sense of it is to miss the point, just bask in its magnificent dreamlike evocation of madness.
