Un Chien Andalou (1929)

french movie by Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dalí

synopsis

Un Chien Andalou is a fifteen minute silent surrealist short film produced in France by the Spanish director Luis Buñuel and artist Salvador Dalí. Its title means "An Andalusian Dog", but it is normally released under its original French title in the English-speaking world. It was Buñuel's first film and was initially released in 1929 to a limited showing in Paris, but became popular and ran for eight months. It is one of the best-known surrealist films of the avant-garde movement of the 1920s.

The film has no plot in the conventional sense of the word. The chronology of the film is disjointed, jumping from the initial "once upon a time" to "eight years later" without the events or characters changing very much. It uses dream logic in narrative flow that can be described in terms of then-popular Freudian free association, presenting a series of tenuously related scenes.

Lick the Star (1998)

american movie of Sofia Coppola.

synopsis

The plot revolves around a clique of four girls who devise a plan to weaken the boys at their school with arsenic. The plan is to slowly poison the boys through their lunches, inspired by the "queen bee" Chloe’s obsession with the novel Flowers in the Attic. As the plan progresses, a minor conversation discussing how important slavery was starts a gossip ring that leads to Chloe's eventual downfall.

The young actresses in Coppola's film have no other screen credits to their names. Peter Bogdanovich appears in a cameo as the Principal. The director of photography was Lance Acord, and the soundtrack features The Amps, Kim Gordon and the Go-Go's. Coppola's own eye appears in one dream-like shot.

The film's themes also appear in Coppola's later work, such as the feelings of isolation; in addition, the film begins with a car journey, just like her later films The Virgin Suicides and Lost In Translation.
