There's no use explaining this film; it's simply something you have to go and look at and look at again. Audiences have been doing just that since 1928, when Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dali cooked up this surrealist masterpiece—replete with donkeys in pianos, eyes being slit by razors, breasts dissolving into buttocks, and so on ad infinitum. At the time of its release, the film was revolutionary in the sense that it uses no “cinematic” flummery—Buñuel and Dali put everything into a rational framework, which makes the film even crazier than it first appears. Anyway, have fun. With subtitled French intertitles.
