From The Arthouse to The Slaughterhouse: ‘Un Chien Andalou’

7 May 2012 7:38 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

“From The Arthouse to The Slaughterhouse” is a new column that will take a look at the films that have impacted the history of cinema by blurring the line between the beautiful and the grotesque; the thoughtful and the bizarre; the artistic and the horrific.  Not content with settling for a straightforward approach to either the arthouse or horror genre, these films defy the standards of “talky” arthouse films and “B movie” shocks and find a way to bridge the gap between the two categories.  It’s a look into the films that oppose explanation, interpretation, and reasoning.  Yet for some reason, they stick in the minds of both scholars and horror fans alike long after the final reel.

The 1929 silent film, Un Chien Andalou (The Andalusian Dog), is the first film we will be taking a look at.  Nothing seems more appropriate to say the least.  At a time »
