Critic Reviews for Un Chien Andalou
This is the avant-garde masterpiece with the razor across an eyeball and dead donkeys sprawled across pianos.
Luis Buñuel began his movie career with the most notorious opening sequence in movie history.
A movie like this is a tonic. It assaults old and unconscious habits of moviegoing.
Plenty of movies follow dream logic. This has dream rhythm.
Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dalí deployed voguish ideas of Freudian free association, and Surrealist dream logic to unsettle bourgeois values and destabilize cinematic convention.
Audience Reviews for Un Chien Andalou
A mind-blowing piece of work that represents a landmark in Cinema due to its incredible boldness for the time it came out, making use of Freudian symbolism not only to take us in a dream-like surrealistic experience but also to challenge the very conception of narrative.
"BWAAAHHHH!" -Hank Hill. That's what I said on the infamous eye scene. Another experimental short. "What the hell?" is what you're gonna say throughout its 20 minutes. What "Un Chien Andalou" offers is a high amount of shock-value and stand-alone scenes that are simply awe-inspiring for its time. C'mon, it made me flinch and engaged. For a short from the 20's, that's absolutely impressive if you ask me. There's not a true narrative to solidly put a finger on; its expected to be a motion picture that's to be interpreted, and what you get is a buffet line of symbolism to be picked apart. "Un Chien Andalou" is a film-lover's dessert.
I just kept saying out loud, over and over, "What the hell am I watching?" Sure, it made me think more than many longer and plot filled movies have, but overall I was unnerved from the strange, dreamlike events that transpired.
