Analysis of Un Chien Andalou

After watching this short film three times, I have some interests when analyzing it. First of all there is really no plot or reasoning as this piece goes along. The scenes jump from place to place with little to no sense or structure. It almost has a scattered "dream-like" feel and I find it intriguing to analyze why it was set up this way. After research I learned that the ever popular dream logic was used and was prevalent at that time. Salvador Dali was the artist involved in this piece, and his use of imagery can be seen in this film.

The Burning Giraffe (1937)
