Possibly the best 21 minutes of silent cinema...

Found 16th Apr
Here's what the BBC say, "Short, silent, surrealistic film featuring a series of striking, irrational and unconnected images based on the dreams of the painter Salvador Dali and the director Luis Bunuel."CAUTION: Contains Some Upsetting Scenes

This film is still as powerful today as it was when first shown in 1929. This is the 21' 10" version with soundtrack from 1960. And Yes, this is the film with the eye... (CAUTION: May contain moderate peril) I know you could probably watch it on a number of other channels but this is what the iPlayer is for and Yes, I know you have to have a TV Licence...

You really should mention what is involved in un chien andalou before people click on it

Which is one of the most (in)famous cinema scenes ever made. Surprised you'd never heard of it.

Classic! Anyone must have heard of this surely?
On a slightly different note but sort of similar, I love "c'etait un rendezvous".

Dali and Bunuel were both extrovert humorous geniuses.

Just in case...and, Yes, another brilliant cinematic treat.

Well, you could watch the shorter version now...just to compare like.

Just had a great idea; recreate the film using Lego! Waddya think?
