[-[[caption-width-right:350:...try not to picture how this scene ends...]]-]
A 1929 MindScrew short silent film made by Luis Buñuel and Creator/SalvadorDali, the father of cinematic EyeScream, a milestone on surrealist cinema, a RealLife example of TrueArtIsIncomprehensible and of course of LeFilmArtistique and the plot -- it's indescribable at best.
The title translates to ''An Andalusian Dog'', which if anything just makes it more confusing (Dalí's friend Lorca was an Andalusian, and they had a falling out around the production of this film, so the title is a TakeThat at Lorca).
!!It gives examples of:
** That's Creator/SalvadorDali dressed as a priest, being dragged along the ground where a piano used to be.
** Buñuel is the man with [[EyeScream the razor]].
* EyeScream: The opening scene is one of the oldest and most infamous cinematic examples. [[spoiler:They used a dead donkey's head and heavy lighting to try obscure the hairs on the face]].
* GainaxEnding: And beginning, and middle.
* IdenticalGrandson: The father and son.
* MindScrew: Oh, God.
* NonAppearingTitle: There is no dog seen in the entire movie. Especially not from Andalusia!
* RandomEventsPlot: Probably the Ur Example in film history.
* SpringtimeForHitler: While their aim was not failure, Dalí and Buñuel were definitely out to offend. Story goes that when they screened the film for the first time, the duo filled their pockets with rocks in order to defend themselves against the inevitably violent reactions from their audience. Much to their surprise and disappointment, however, the audience ''enjoyed'' it.
* WipeThatSmileOffYourFace: Someone's mouth disappears. It makes about as much sense as anything else in this movie.
