Robert Benayoun, a French film critic and writer, was a Surrealist, and looked for Surrealism everywhere. Of course, on this ground, he hated Walt Disney and adored Tex Avery. His starting viewpoint is questionable, but the book is consistent with it, and was published just in the middle of the years of “auteur”, “individual” “anti-Disney” cultural Movement. IN FRENCH.
