Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dali’s unfathomable short from 1929 is a masterpiece of filmmaking guile and audacity, a shocking celluloid dreamscape that destroyed film convention with bizarre images that still resonate today.
The film opens with a young Buñuel sharpening a knife, a cloud cutting the
moon in the night sky, the said knife slicing a women’s tender eyeball before
shots of gaping, ant ridden hands and mouths stuffed with armpit hair push the
film beyond its surrealist limits. Young subversives hoping to influence
Paris’s ruling artistic elite, Buñuel and
Dalí got more than they bargained for when their film redefined the entire movement.
Proudly presented for the first time on DVD in Australia, this art film masterwork is accompanied by a host of very special features, including two documentaries on the artistic life of Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dali, and Buñuel's only film documentary, Las Hurdes (1933), the story of an impoverished Spanish community that reprised the director's fascination with insects, human cruelty and the corruption of the Catholic Church.
