Unsilvered Screen by Graeme Harper

Book Description

Luis Bunuel once recalled that 'the real purpose of Surrealism was not to create a new literary, artistic or even philosophical movement, but to explode the social order, to transform life itself'. Naturally drawn to such comments, here in this volume leading critics from the UK, US, Australia, Canada and Japan offer fresh, and some-times provocative views of canonical Surrealist works from Bunuel, Jan Svankmajer and David Lynch, alongside lively analyses of surprisingly surrealist aspects of contemporary Japanese, Russian and British cinema, Disney animation, digital cinema and documentary. "The Unsilvered Screen" thus explores the vibrant effect and considerable legacy of Surrealism on film.
