breif disturbing image?


what is the brief disturbing image in the film?? and how disturbing is it?

reply

The brief disturbing image is a woman's eyeball being sliced open with a blade. They used a real eye (a calf's I think).Don't know how disturbing it is as I ducked my head to avoid watching it lol. Sorry!

i unfortunately did not shut my eyes in time and saw it... it is very disturbing... even if it was fake, it looks very real. But I don't like anything graphic like that the slight hint of blood and I get disturbed, so it may not be as disturbing to others as it was to me.

You people are illiterates.

Its the famous shot of the eye being sliced in Un Chien Andalou, Luís Buñuel's famous film from the late twenties. If you read about this movie, you know he is a character portrayed, and Dalí collaborated with him on that movie.

And if you really want to know, it wasn't a real person's eye, it was a calf or a sheep's eyeball.

Um...doesn't illiterate mean 'can't read or write'?

If YOU had bothered to read, you would have seen that I already said it was a calf's eye.

Way to make a d*ck of yourself lol!

erm...why am I getting the vibe you're a 14 year old twilight girl? In that case I'll not even argue with you.

Anyone who knows anything about Luís Buñuel, who is one of the people this movie is about, knows that his best known film is the one he did with Dalí. That shot of the sliced eye is not only its most enduring image but one of the most shocking(if the THE MOST shocking) from any film before or since.

I can obviously tell none of you know nothing of it. So go back to the twilight board.

Um...neither of them commented on why that scene was in the movie--all they were doing was answering the OP's question in regard to what the "brief disturbing image" labeled in the rating was, which just so happens to be that scene from Bunuel's film.

Why do I get the feeling that you're arrogant and are trying to look superior?

How exactly can you tell they are "14 y/o twilight fuqqers who want to see this movie for one reason"? I didn't get that from their posts at all.

So, you're telling me that you can tell they're "teeny twilight fuquers" from these posts:

The brief disturbing image is a woman's eyeball being sliced open with a blade. They used a real eye (a calf's I think).Don't know how disturbing it is as I ducked my head to avoid watching it lol. Sorry!

The tone of both of these posts reflects that the two posters are disgusted by the visible slicing of an eye. You don't have to be a "tween" to be disturbed or disgusted by that, regardless of the fact that it comes from a very famous film. Hell, I'm 18, and I still had to close my eyes for this. I'm just an extremely queasy person, and probably always will be.

The subject of their posts is the slicing of an eye, and their own reactions to it. I don't know how Twilight relates to that at all.

Now, the language... The only word out of either of their posts that I can see you saying, "Tween!" to is when the first poster added, "lol." Aside from that, I don't see anything "tweeny" about their language whatsoever.

If you see something I don't, then, please, feel free to share. But, please say more than just "I can tell that is just what they are." That's extremely vague, and doesn't give me any information whatsoever.

Thanks for trying to put the point across to this poster but I fear you are wasting your time. The person obviously wants attention and conflict. Nothing you say will make sense to them because they don't want it to.

I quite like being thought of as a 14 year old - although I am nearer to three times that age. But I guess, when this person is trying to act superior, they need to assume a lot in order to form some semblance of an argument?

I didn't check back to see what the response to my post was - as I kind of guessed what the tone would be - but thanks again for your help.


And after checking your posting history 'The Mean Reds' (or whatever you are called) - I can see YOUR main interest in the film is lusting over Javier and the hot gay kissing scenes. You were even surprised he drew your attention away from Rob.

I'm sorry. Please remind me again. Exactly who is the panting fan girl around here?

Hahah. It's cool. I quite enjoy putting people in their place; whether they're arguing with me out of stubbornness or immaturity doesn't really matter to me.

Yes, I most certainly do. Not so much Bunuel, and quite honestly because he had the smaller of the three parts, but Dali, Gala and Garcia Lorca, most definitely. Me, I am more interested in reading what Garcia Lorca wrote.

There are quite a few people that visit this board that have read Gibson's bios on both Dali and Lorca, some have read Sebastian's Arrows and some may have just visited the Little Ashes Promo web site where there were plenty of well researched articles on all the characters that were in this film.


And good luck waiting on the Banderas film. The script has yet to receive approval from the Gala-Salvador Dali foundation. Appears that they are not pleased.

well your apparently not as smart as you think you are.
You can't even use the word illiterate in the right context.
illiterate, illiteracy, and illiterately.
"You people are illiterates"<- that's not even a word.

Lets try to learn!

..You are illiterate, He/She is illiterate.

illiterate
adj illiterate [i&#712;lit&#601;r&#601;t]
1 unable to read and write.

... obviously they can both read AND write.
So therefore(which i probably shouldn't use that word since you probably don't know what it means.) They are both, very LITERATE.
And yes that is a word meaning they can read and write.

Illiterate can be used as a noun, dude.

Um, I was pretty disturbed by seeing Pattinson's mangina. It was pretty brief, but still...oy gevalt. I mean, didn't we all kind of expect FULL frontal? it's half of why i bothered to go in the first place. Ok, maybe more than half.

reply

Anything that contains Dalí and Buñuel together= DISTURBING SCENES SINCE BOTH ARE/WERE SURREAL ARTISTS.
U want a link to the real Un Chien Andalaou scene?
Can't wait to see this movie. Robert took a great oportunity on this.

Can you hear that? Those are the sounds from Mars

reply

I thought that the stabbing of the bull, or the bear head was more disturbing. They're brief though, and the bear head was in the background. I've only watched it once so far, and those two brief details of the movie were all that I didn't like.

the image:
it was possible the most disgusting and horrific thing i've ever seen and that includes cutting open a pigs fetus and seeing a cows eye being sliced open before. the thoughts and feelings of those images came back after watching it.

as for the arrogant jerk who made this thread go off topic, twilight fans who have read the books and thought that edward could have been cast differently are actually more intelligent than you think they are.

reply

erm, whats with the twilight bashing on this thread!?! i'm 25 and like twilight (the books and the film). there's nothing wrong with enjoying a film or a book, and just because some people don't like it, that doesn't mean that there's anything wrong with the people that do. And if someone does like a particular film/book, that doesn't mean you should sterotype them as a teenage girl with a crush. As well as myself, my friend and her husband (who are both also 25) and my friends mom (who is in her 30's) also really enjoyed the twilight books and the film. and please don't try to lump me in with teenage girls with a crush, as it just won't work, my other favourite films are interview with the vampire, and baseketball, so i'm really not easy to stereotype! anyway, all i wanted to do was find out from this thread what the 'disturbing image' was in this film, and it seems we've all been slightly sidetracked, but thanks for answering my question :0)

reply

For me it was when Robert (Dali) kisses the other dude OMG it's so wrong not the fact that he is gay just the fact that Robert kisses another guy its like nooooooooo...
