L'âge d'or by Luis Buñuel( Visual )

25 editions published between 1930 and 2012 in French and English and held by 755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Luis Buũel's second film is a surreal attack on bourgeois ideals that incited a riot when first released and still retains its power to shock. Buũel began the film as a collaboration with Salvador Dalí, but after a few days working together the two had a falling out and Buũel made the film himself, incorporating many of Dalí's ideas. Its narrative follows two nameless characters, a man and a woman, through a series of scenes connected by dreamlike logic as they try, unsuccessfully, to make love. One memorable sequence finds the couple writhing around on a cliff when a mob of socialites comes upon them and pries them apart. Frustrated, the man sees a yelping poodle and kicks it into the air. "L'age d'or" is not only an attack on bourgeois life but also a doctrine that directs humanity to live as the surrealists believed they should: that is, by placing love before everything else in life, such as the church, status, and family. Funny, disturbing, and thoroughly bizarre, Buũel's film is a purposefully blasphemous and corrosive work that attacks social institutions with such vigor and imagination that one cannot help but be entertained

Blood of a poet by Jean Cocteau( Visual )

5 editions published between 1930 and 2007 in French and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This was Jean Cocteau's first film. Cocteau was given complete creative freedom by his private backer the Vicomte de Noailles. As a result he was able to create an entirely personal, work of cinema, using the same inspirations and interests he had employed previously in his novels, drawings and poetry. In the first of this film's four episodes, a tall smokestack starts to collapse. Then the scene shifts to a young poet who is sketching faces. He sees that a sketch's mouth is moving and wipes it off with his hand; the mouth attaches itself to his palm. Eventually he transfers the mouth to a statue in his room. In the second episode, the statue tells the poet to enter a mirror. He falls into the darkness of the mirror's interior and finds himself at the Hotel de Folies-Dramatiques. The poet crawls along the hallway and peers into the keyholes, where he sees various bizarre situations. He reaches the end of the hallway, someone hands him a gun, and he shoots himself. The poet returns to his room and smashes the statue; then he becomes a statue himself in a courtyard. In the third episode, a group of boys engage in a snowfight in the courtyard. The statue is destroyed and one boy is left bloody and possibly dead. In the final episode, the courtyard is revealed to be a stage on which a young woman and the poet play cards next to the boy's body, which is still lying on the ground. The woman tells the poet that he is lost without the Ace; he takes the card from the boy's jacket. The boy's guardian angel appears and covers him. He takes the Ace from the poet and leaves; the poet shoots himself in the head and the audience applauds. The woman walks away and it is revealed that she is the statue; then the film ends with the final collapse of the tall smokestack. In this film, "I am trying to picture the poet's inner self." Jean Cocteau
Un chien andalou ; L'âge d'or by Luis Buñuel( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Synopsis for Un chien andalou: In a dream-like sequence, a woman's eye is slit open--juxtaposed with a similarly shaped cloud obsucuring the moon moving in the same direction as the knife through the eye--to grab the audience's attention. The French phrase "ants in the palms," (which means that someone is "itching" to kill) is shown literally. A man pulls a piano along with the tablets of the Ten Commandments and a dead donkey towards the woman he's itching to kill. A shot of differently striped objects is repeatedly used to connect scenes

L'age d'or( Visual )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chien andalou: Filmed in the subjective language of the unconscious, this early silent avant-grade surrealistic film -- one of the first movies made independently by its creators on a shoestring budget, without studio financing -- was written over the course of a three-day exchange of fantasies and dreams between Louis Buñuel and artist Salvador Dalí. Featuring no plot in the conventional sense of the word, this short film uses dream logic in narrative flow that can be described in terms of Freudian free association, presenting a series of tenuously related scenes, the chronology of the film disjointed, jumping from the initial "once upon a time" to "eight years later" without the events or characters changing very much
