"Kuenzli has done film studies a service by gathering some of the best minds in the fields reflecting on specific topics."
-- Andrew Horton, "Film Quarterly"

"A comprehensive, clear and factual presentation of the subject . . . very useful."
-- Simonne Fischer, "French Review"

This groundbreaking collection of thirteen original essays analyzes connections between film and two highly influential twentieth-century movements. The essays, which comment on specific films and deal with theoretical and topical questions, are framed by a documentary section that includes a photographic reproduction of the manuscript scenario for Robert Desnos's and Man Ray's "L'Etoile de mer," and an introduction by the editor that provides a cogent working model for the difference between Dada and Surrealist perspectives.
