A collaboration between Luis Bunuel and Salvador Dali, this is a cinematic surrealist masterpiece which still holds the power to shock and disorient the viewer in spades. An immense influence in the world of film- you must see this at least once in your lifetime.

When it comes to the sheer impact of its overall shock-value - I'd definitely say that 1929's Un Chien Andalou really doesn't even come close to living up to its celebrated reputation at all. No it doesn't. Not even by a surrealistic country mile.

Over the years I have heard nothing but loud applause and excited praise for this silent-era film which is held up in such high-regard and considered to be the very first of its kind to emerge from the early 20th Century's "Surrealist Movement" of film-making.

Sure, 86 years ago Un Chien Andalou may have totally shocked and disgusted its audience (as it was clearly intended to do). But, today, for the jaded, "seen-it-all" viewer, this 16-minute short only succeeded in its demented, little mission by holding my attention for but a few brief sequences.

Directed by Spanish, avant-garde, film-maker, Luis Bunuel, Un Chien Andalou's story was hatched from the unhinged ideas that seeped out of Salvador Dali's head.
