Entr’Acte (dir. Rene Clair, 1924)

The 1920s were a golden age for surrealistic films. Silent cinema by its nature has a dreamlike quality to it, so the medium was perfect for this kind of experimentation. My favorite of these surrealist pictures is the wonderfully wacky short film Entr’Acte (1924). Imagine the most bizarre, hilarious, and yet morbid dream you’ve ever had and that describes this oddity well. Directed by Rene Clair and scored by Erik Satie, this is just a fun experience all around. Who said all avant-garde works needed to be dry or incomprehensible?
