Movie Reviews

A unique and fascinating film
Franklin L. Zolikofer | 09/23/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I watched this film at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and had to buy a DVD of it. It is an amazing film that captures Dali at his most surreal. He performs various art events, including being surrounded by a million dollars in cash while an egg containing huge black ants is broken on his face as the legendary photographer, Philippe Halsmann snaps away with his Hasselblad. The black and white cinematography reminded me of Pennebaker and I discovered later that the cameraman, Jim Desmond, had been his protegee. There is an energy to this film that carries it along and I was not bored for a moment. It has a very '60s feel and the technique of the film reflects Dali's surreal creativity. After the screening at MOMA, to a full house, the audience was very appreciative, and a Japanese woman stood up and said the film had brought her true happiness and had changed her life."
