Dir. Luis Buñuel & Salvador Dali (1930).
Bad boys Buñuel and Dali’s follow up to Un chien andalous was far more blasphemous—a riot-inspiring paean to mad love that begins as a documentary on scorpions and winds up casting Jesus Christ in the 120 Days of Sodom. L’age d’or doesn’t actually represent sex or violence, although it’s steeped in both. One approving surrealist called it “a moral rather than a poetic film.”
