smndvdcl's rating of the film L'âge d'or

A masterpiece of subversive free association and absurdist imagery. Apparently, when the film was premiered on Dec 3rd 1930 at Studio 28 – members of the Fascist League of Patriots hurled ink at the screen and attacked the audience – a newspaper called it ‘the new poison that Judaism and Masonry want to use in order to corrupt the people’ – and was out of distribution for 50 years. Another reason to love it then!
