Mr. Barber is a surrealist expert and his delivery kind of reminded me of Kiefer Sutherland’s character in ‘Dark City’. He does his best to situate the movie in the evolution of surrealist cinema. He talks about its place at the end of the 1920s and how it differed with other works of the time. He talks about the sex and death in the movie. It’s not the most interesting commentary. I thought he’d concentrate on the imagery and symbolism, but he leaves that to you.
