This book-chapter is using Deleuzian film theory in order to explore Bunuel's sustained engagement with Surrealist visual aesthetics and his experimental use of shot transitions, mise-en-scene and montage beginning with the late 1920s, that can be said to prefigure the advent of the time-image while highlighting his proximity to Breton's conception of beauty as 'fixed-explosive'.
