Review
Bunuel and Dali's early creation that caused both a public furore and critical rapture on release. Only 17 minutes long, it is a paean to surrealism, from the opening shot of a woman's eyeball being cut by a razor, with donkeys on pianos, a swarm of ants, underarm hair, a striped box, all addressing each other opaquely and with everything symbolising something else. Shock value, and some remarkable ideas!
