All In The Split Of An Eye

Un chien andalou, 1929 - d. Luis Buñuel (1900-1983)

'What a beautiful thing is a film booed by the crowd! I have only heard the public laugh at the movies. It is time that their faces be whipped so that we may know if there is blood under the skin. The cinema still lacks the consecration of catcalls in order to have the attention of men of heart. Obtain that, so finally the purity may appear which inspires spit.'

Louis Aragon (1897-1982)
