The Movie: Un Chien Andalou (1929)
What Is It?: Landmark surrealist short unites two giants in the field specializing in different mediums: filmmaker Luis Buñuel and painter Salvador Dali. Still incredibly shocking (yes, I’m thinking of that eyeball). So good, The Pixies wrote a song about it.
Why Today?: On this day in 1936, the London International Surrealist Exhibition opens at the New Burlington Galleries.
