Relatively big difference between his early shit and when he resumed his career in the 50s/60s.

Un Chien Andalou and L'Age d'Or are goddamn masterpieces.

I love his later shit a lot, but it's so much more tame and toned down. More like "magical realism" than Surrealism. Still, the trilogy of The Milky Way, Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie and The Phantom of Liberty are some of the finest absurd comedies ever made. Perhaps better than anything Monty Python.
