See this film retrospective: Bunuel: The End And the Beginning at the HFA

Woody Allen has a little fun with one of the great filmmakers of all time in his new film Midnight in Paris by having him look confused when Owen Wilson suggests to him the plot of what would eventually be his film The Exterminating Angel (1962). But the real Luis Buñuel knew his way around a surreal concept, as can be seen in the films opening the retrospective Bunuel: The End And the Beginning. Nobody has equaled his image of the sliced eyeball in his sublime silent short Un Chien Andalou (1928), unless you include just about every shot in his outrageous L'Age D'Or (1930).
