Un Chien Andalou (An Andalusian Dog) is a 1928 silent surrealist short film by the Spanish director Luis Buñuel and artist Salvador Dalí.
"Widely considered to be the most famous experimental film of all time, Un Chien Andalou was the result of a meeting of two of the greatest minds of the 20th century: surrealists Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dalí. The film has no real plot, relying instead on bizarre imagery drawn from dream logic and Freudian free association techniques. Made infamous for its opening scene that depicts a woman having her eye sliced open with a razor, it would go on to gain great notoriety among art circles. Once again, I must repeat that any attempt to try to glean any kind of meaning or interpretation of the film is pointless. Buñuel himself once stated that during the writing process for the film, they made sure that “no idea or image that might lend itself to a rational explanation of any kind would be accepted.” He went on to add that “Nothing, in the film, symbolizes anything.” NATHANAEL HOOD - Top Tenz
