Caution! Disturbing Images by Jan Svankmajer

I came across Jan Svankmajer in my film theory class at UCLA Extension. In the tradition of Surrealism, his work is bizarre and fantastical. The first clip, titled Meat Love, anthropomorphizes men’s untamed sexual desires.

This second clip, titled Dinner, uses evocative images and events juxtaposed for disturbing effects. Through a behavior that defies logic and reason for most people, Dinner seeks to unleash the “superior reality” of our sub- and unconscious. (I have to warn you; it's Disturbing!)
