Buñuel and Dali’s surrealist bombshells come up fresher and more provocative than ever

Scrupulously restored, Buñuel and Dali’s surrealist bombshells come up fresher and more provocative than ever. Kinky clerics, dead donkeys, razors across eyeballs – the subversive young Spaniards gleefully raid the Freudian toolbox and string it all together with delirious dream logic. The BFI release is bulked out with a substantial intro and commentary by surrealism expert Robert Short, plus a Spanish Buñuel documentary.
