Re: Surrealist Film

This short film, while a product of the Dada movement, is still worth a watch since Dada is the precursor to Surrealism.

This is my life. This is my damnation. This is my only regret--that I ever was born.

Re: Surrealist Film

Thanks for that clip, I've saw that film available recently and I only found trailers for other 70s films with similar titles that didn't look as good.
I'd really like to see this.

Nude For Satan is quite surreal, not a great film, it has a classic bad movie moment but it's got an impressive atmosphere in many parts and gorgeous soundtrack. Perfect film to doze off to pleasantly.
Or you could just listen to the soundtrack, I believe this is most of it

Re: Surrealist Film


No irony here. This film is wonderful. Jess Franco at his best was a fine surrealist filmmaker.

I just finished the film and, albeit very difficult to follow, is very evocative. Thanks for the recommendation.

Re: Surrealist Film

I had actually never seen anything by Svankmajer. Thanks, ChildofOldLeech.

Here's one I just found that's worth sharing. Class struggle as lunch.

This is my life. This is my damnation. This is my only regret--that I ever was born.
