      Un Chien Andalou--Abstract Interest

      1. A world of reasonable order In 1928, French directors Buuel (1900–1983) and Dal (1904–1989) made a satire of their friend, the poet Lorca, in the "Student Apartment" art group in their early years. Why Andalus? No dog? In the "college" of wealthy children, the southerners are called "Andalusian dogs," mocking them for being stupid and not growing up like their...

      This guy looks like a dog

      The joys and sorrows in the movie are the most moving, because the movie has to produce good results in a short period of time, and the power of love is also great.

      The framing of the film is excellent, especially its close-up shots, which bring out the inner world of everyone vividly.
      This movie is full of betrayal and pain, but in front of love, these are all insignificant. Only love is great, and love can help us overcome everything.
      This movie made me feel a lot,...

      An Andalusian dog gossip (*´﹃`*) may have a follow-up

      It's really annoying to see some people explain and explain! All boring! (TдT)
      The ultimate purpose of an Andalusian dog is to make people feel sick!
      (Boob and Dali's masochistic bad taste)

      _(_^_)_Then start driving now~

      The movie originated from the dream of Boob and Dali. Bubu dreamed that a man had his eyes cut off, and Dali dreamed that ants were crawling all over his hands. Then the two of them yyed each other with the rest of the picture, and...

      On the Symbolism of "An Andalusian Dog"

      "An Andalusian Dog" "An Andalusian Dog" is hailed as the originator of surrealism. This film by Bunurai is only 16 minutes long, but it has a great influence on later generations. The film doesn't seem to have any logic at all. The last shot is still a cut eye, and the next shot, the eye is intact again; the man's hand is clearly locked out of the door, but in a blink of an eye, he is lying down again wearing a childish baby clothes. in bed. From the analysis of the actual plot, there is no...

      Three characteristics of dreams

      I often think about what would happen if a dream was completely restored with imaging technology. It turns out that I haven't seen this awesome short film from 1929. Later primary school students Jodorowsky's "Holy Blood" and Kurosawa's "Dream" only used the imagery of dreams. And this Andalus dog, which Buñue and Dali cooperated with, is the real restoration dream.

      The three hallmarks of dreams: anxiety, grotesque, illogical (and thus fruitless), are literally reenactments. This is...

      →The Spanish director who lived in France and the surrealist painter Salvador Dali wrote it together. The film, like "The Shell and the Monk", does not have any unifying logical clues. What is described is just a hazy poetic world, the purpose is to use the metaphor of direct visual image to express the feeling and vibration of the soul... The first surrealist Lautreamon said, "An umbrella and a sewing machine are in the Meeting on the operating table is also...

      Bunuel's representative work of a surrealist film, I can't understand what all the elements in the short film want to express or highlight, but the use of montage in this film should be at the highest level at the time. As for why this film was made, it can only be expressed by Buñuel...

    Evaluation action

    "An Andalusian Dog" is the first and masterpiece of surrealist movies. Bruel used the disorganized audiovisual language to create a blurry and peculiar effect. There are many scenes in the film that are meaningless in terms of images and narratives but are worthy of interpretation and in-depth study. These scenes have also become classics ("Empire" review)  .
    The image of "An Andalusian Dog" is very obscure, but it is still classified...
