Really Awful Movies: Ep 158 – Un Chien Andalou

December 23, 2016

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.
