The Branded Eye
Bunuel's "Chien Andalou" annotated edition
Branded Eye by Jenaro Talens
Book DescriptionIn "The Branded Eye", Talens elevates the discussion of the intellectual and artistic movement of 1920s surrealism and Bunuel's "Un Chien Andalou" to a new level of sophistication. To approach Bunuel's work, he says, implies dealing not only with a specific text, but what "reading a film" means. In 1929, "Un Chien Andalou" opened in Paris to a riotous response. People were enraged and disturbed by its shocking content, structure, and narrative form. This translation of Talen's "The Branded Eye" offers a detailed analysis of the film, including its production background, Salvador Dali's influence in its making, biographical information on Bunuel, and an annotated script of the film, shot-by-shot description, and complete film decoupage. Talens also discusses the importance of the "gaze" and the influence of "Un Chien Andalou" on later films by directors such as Alfred Hitchcock and Roman Polanski. "The Branded Eye" offers a contribution to the body of work on Bunuel and his film "Un Chien Andalou". Jenaro Talens has written 15 books of poetry and has published widely on literary theory and history. Among his publications are "Romanticism and the Writing of Modernity" and, with Nicholas Spadaccini, "Through the Shattering Glass: Cervantes and the Self-Made World" (Minnesota, 1992). Giulia Colaizzi has editied "Feminismo y teoria del discurso" and "Teoria feminista y teoria filmica".
