Movie Reviews

Short but fascinating
Fabina R. Bacoo | Burbank | 02/18/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This excellent, 75 min. docu on Dali is a must for any hardcore Dali fan. There are lots of shots of his paintings & also interview segments with him & a segment on his brilliantly surreal film, Un Chien Andalou & 2 commercials he made for Alka Seltzer and chocolates (!) when he was older & even a black and white photo of him and Alice Cooper. And a thankfully brief closing when he was horribly old and stricken with Parkinson's disease. And tho the box says this docu is in black & white, thank God that's not correct. Check it out!"
Fun & Informative

"This documentary should equally satisfy those already familiar with Dali and those who know nothing about him. I can't imagine anyone not being entertained by this display of Dali's unique personality. Passionate admires of Dali may find it difficult to view the footage of the Divine Dali not looking so divine in the 80's. A huge plus is the sub-titles even when Dali is speaking in English. Some important people are interviewed such as Man Ray, Max Ernst and Albert Field (author of the must have Official Catalog of the Graphic Works of Salvador Dali) among others. I saw this documentary two nights in a row and enjoyed it just as much the second time around."
Great documentary

"I'm not sure why the the DVD says black and white (a black and white documentary about an artist makes as much sense as a documentary about Beethoven with no sound). Although the DVD offers nothing extra (other than better video quality) from the VHS, overall its an exceptionally interesting look into the madman who wasn't mad. Highly Recommended for anyone who has ever wondered what makes watches melt."

"Audio is not good enough and somehow it is a little bit to dark."
