This book is a critical, genre study of surrealist films including a general discussion of the backgrounds, influences, and overall traits of surrealism as a mode of artistic response to an absurdist world. Citing the impetus of Jacques Vache and Andre Breton as the originators of surrealism, the work expands upon the themes of fractured realism and fascination with the marvelous which are the core of surrealist works. Examples of commercially-produced surrealist films are discussed--specifically those of Luis Bunuel. Illustrated by 31 stills from surrealist films. (Ch)
