Buñuel waged a full-on surrealist assault on bourgeois sensibilities with his riot-inducing second film, which begins as a documentary on scorpions, turns into a demented romance about a couple’s attempts to consummate their relationship, and winds up with an orgy straight out of the Marquis de Sade. 35mm.
With Simone Mareuil, Pierre Batcheff
Run time: 16min
Eyeball meets razor blade in Buñuel’s landmark first film. Made in collaboration with Dalí, “the most famous short film ever made” (Roger Ebert) is a delirious onslaught of breathtakingly surreal imagery that Buñuel described as “a desperate impassioned call for murder.” 16mm.
