An Andalusian Dog a.k.a. Un chien andalou (1929)--
When writing the script, Luis Bunuel and Salvador Dali deliberately

or may not mean anything. A woman's eye is slit open, a man pokes at
a severed hand in the street with his cane, a man drags two grand
pianos containing dead and rotting donkeys and live priests, a man's
hand has a hole in the palm from which ants emerge. (8/10)

cult of an aimless, non-creative and non-responsible form of intelligence

Perhaps the best action movie ever made besides Hard-Boiled. The plot twists

spectacular theme that Woo is master at exploring in this film. (9/10)

Last House On The Left (1972)--
Wes Craven's first movie is his most brutal creation. The scenes are
shocking and graphic, leaving nothing to the imagination. Banned in the
