Really Awful Movies: Ep 158 – Un Chien Andalou
On this week's episode of the podcast, Un Chien Andalou. You've probably seen the poster, even if you don't recognize its origins.
Un Chien Andalou is a 1929 silent surrealist short by Spanish director Luis Buñuel and artist/showman. Salvador Dalí.
This was Buñuel's first film and was initially released in 1929 with a limited showing in Paris, then becoming hugely popular.
Un Chien Andalou has no plot. The film is disjointed, jumping from the initial "once upon a time" to "eight years later" without the events or characters changing very much.
The film uses a bunch of free association, and out of sequence chronology.
Join us for some surrealism.
