Dreams of dark and troubled things

Added my notes on Un Chien Andalou (1928) and L’Age d’Or (1930) over at Alex on Film. It’s hard not to envy Buñuel a bit. It was easier to shock the bourgeoisie back in the day. I mean, back in the day when we still had a mass bourgeoisie. Of course you can still be a radical, but the propertied classes are both more powerful and angrier than they were. Taking them on isn’t as much fun, or as safe.
