    I remember seeing this drawing in the Guggenheim’s surrealism exhibition about ten years ago, and being deeply unsettled. The combination of violence, sexuality and scatology are disturbing indeed, as is almost everything of Bellmer’s I’ve seen. I prefer my surrealism tempered by humor, otherwise its more sinister elements feel oppressive.

    On a tangent, “Love and Death” is easily my favorite Woody Allen movie.Report

      Yeah, I was thinking about changing “somewhat disturbing” to “very disturbing”.

      That’s my favorite Woody Allen movie too. I think it’s actually Woody Allen’s favorite of his movies.Report
