Great formative Surrealist flick.

You know - Within the very first minutes of watching this early, off-kilter study of cinematic neurosis - I just knew that a scene involving excrement was bound to be coming my way.... And, you know what?.... You're gonna have to watch 1930's "L'age D'or" for yourself to find out if I was right, or not.

If nothing else - I swear that this 88-year-old foreign film must certainly hold some kind of world's record when it comes to the total number of times that its 2 principal actors completely humiliated themselves (from one scene to another) simply for the sake of being the stars in this absurd, half-baked lunacy.

Anyway - Judging by this mess-terpiece's high ratings and glowing reviews on IMDB - I'm convinced that (no matter how constructive one's comments may be) this is yet another one of those pictures that nobody is allowed to criticize in a negative way. No way.

The only thing one is permitted to do is to discuss this hateful picture as an artistic triumph, and nothing else.

This film is one big flip of the middle finger to everyone, especially the Catholic church when it premiered in 1930. Essentially a silent film with some sound, the screenplay is by both Luis Bunuel and Salvador Dali and directed by Bunuel. There's not much plot to speak of but a collection of surreal images. It was banned originally and shocked people and for good reason. Lets face it, toe sucking is basically pornography and before that there's hand sucking. You can see how other 'bad boy' directors such as Ken Russell got some of their inspiration. For film geeks, this is a must see but definitely have some mind altering substances on hand, or at least a good drink.
