Un Chien Andalou Reflection

I am not entirely sure what the theme of the film is. It includes many different sorts of unique elements which blend together. For example, the lady with the armpit hair is clearly a symbol for societies strict norms against women. Another element which is clearly evident throughout the film is death. Looking back, the scene with the eyeball is clearly meant to depict death, and this theme is reoccurring throughout the rest of the film (spiders, etc.) Overall it's an interesting film and it took me a couple times of watching it to really feel like I got the point
