A Cinematic Dream, 80 Years Old
I was a 19-year-year-old hick from South Dakota who loved movies like "Vanishing Point" and "Evel Knievel" when I was introduced to "Un Chien Andalou" at a David Bowie concert at the Jahrhunderthalle in Frankfurt in 1976. It blew my mind, opening up a whole new film experience for me. Check out this brief introduction from A. O. Scott at The New York Times.
