Un Chien Andalou (rewatch)

Posted by martinteller on July 1, 2008

I feel like I’ve been neglecting Bunuel.  Even though I’ve seen a bajillion of his movies, there’s only 4 that I’ve watched more than once.  I can think of at least 8 others that deserve a revisit.  Un Chien Andalou is always easy to return to, not just because it’s only 16 minutes long, but it’s also so damn enjoyable.  I love how it practically DEFIES you to interpret it (where do you even begin with a man who steals his woman’s armpit hair and replaces his mouth with it??)… and yet you can’t help but try to attach meanings to the strange, and sometimes contradictory, events unfolding.  And it’s just fucking hilarious too.  Rating: 9
