Surrealist enjoyment...
18 October 2010 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

This mega-psychotropic inducing movie makes as much sense as a rat making love to a grapefruit..... that is, not everyone would enjoy the scene; but, the vision will be remembered for years and decades to come! Dali was a man onto himself...and the story of his love for his wife Gala makes for a great love story on it's own. The viewer is not quite sure if Dali was a mad-man or a true genius..but, my opinion is that the latter applies, after one sees his art-work. The movie itself is a true work of art that one would expect from a cinematic magician, like Orson Welees (who I believe helped to produce said movie) The cat piano scenario is the closest anyone will come to seeing a LIVE Warner Brothers cartoon!

I enjoyed it! For Dali Fans! Others Beware...kinda!
