Movie Reviews

Excellent Bio
Xam | nyc | 09/06/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This well-made documentary on the great Dada / Surrealist Max Ernst is a must for fans of those movements. This superb artist all to often goes unnoticed by our current mainstream culture, which seems too obsessed with Dali and Duchamp. Sure those two were important, but Max Ernst was probably just as significant in the development of modern art. The DVD quality is very good, and the movie itself is simply terrific. It follows the life and career of DadaMax, with footage of him speaking, and in a Bunuel movie. 5 out of 5."
Artist Speaking about his own Work
Bill C. | Eastern Virginia | 01/20/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This excellent documentary of the great German artist has mostly footage of him speaking about his own work, which is for me the very best way to help me understand any artist's work. His remarks as well as the accompanying biographical information are excellently done. The only reason I give it only 4 stars is that he's not one of my favorite artists."
