Cardmember Offers



A classic French silent of dance and Dada, this film was produced by French dance company Les Ballet Suedois, and stars them as well, mourning the loss of their star dancer Jean Börlin. An outrageous funeral procession is mounted, with the hearse being pulled by a camel. On the way up an incline, the hearse breaks loose, and all the mourner/dancers give terribly graceful chase. When the hearse finally stops, the "deceased" rises again for a terrific solo. Entr'acte is as silly as it is surreal and was obviously a lot of fun to make, since almost everybody behind the camera gets to take their turn in front, including Erik Satie, who provided the soundtrack (uncredited). ~ John Voorhees, Rovi, Rovi

Ballet Mécanique
This video art production is an abstract piece in which role reversal is carried to its peak - all the "dancing" is done by inanimate objects and the people are used as stationary, inanimate objects stuck in repeating patterns. ~ Tana Hobart, Rovi, Rovi

La Coquille et le Clergyman
The British censors found this film incomprehensible as it combines surrealism and avant-garde techniques. ~ Rovi, Rovi
