Mogwai Fear Un Chien Andalou

Luis Bunuel's Un chien andalou (1929)... Quite possibly the most intrinsically vital piece of surrealist cinema ever. A quixotic nightmare that continues to provoke and unsettle the viewer even today. A collection of symbols so willfully obtuse as to perpetually disallow cohesive semiotic analysis. A masterful exercise in the ultimate dominion of the image over narrative progression, as rendered by a skilled auteur... The slicing of an eye...

Don't believe the hyperbole? Below lies Un chien andalou. Do have a look. There is a twist however. This particular version is soundtracked by the ethereal augmentation of Mogwai's "Mogwai Fear Satan". Which rocks.

Drugs might help... I jest.
