L’Age d’Or (rewatch)

Posted by martinteller on September 10, 2009

I’ve been using my vacation to finally play through “Grand Theft Auto IV” (although, ha ha, I spent the first hour of it watching the in-game TV… man, I love Ricky Gervais, but his stand-up SUCKS).  But I took a little time-out to watch this short Bunuel in an effort to keep the DVD stack from getting too high.  What prevents L’Age d’Or from having the same impact as its predecessor is quite simply its length.  Surrealism works best in small doses, 60 minutes of it gets a bit wearying.  Although there are probably as many (if not more) great moments as Un Chien Andalou, they’re spaced further apart and I tend to get a little restless during it.  But maybe I’m just anxious to get back to running over innocent people with stolen cars.  Rating: 8
