Have you ever sat patiently listening as someone droned on and on about a dream or nightmare they had? If only there were visuals to illustrate the horror or magnificence! Un chien andalou is a sixteen minute silent surrealist film, the collborative effort of the Spanish director Luis Buñuel and artist Salvador Dalí. The fragmented chronology combined with shocking visual imagery (notably a woman's eye cut with a straight razor) is the stuff of hallucinatory dreams. The music, lively like a tango, is an incongruous choice.
