Monty Python + David Lynch = Donkey Xote
11 November 2009 | by (Oosterscheldekering) – See all my reviews

Well, first of all I really liked the earlier surrealistic movie "wizard of oz" by Pixar but I guess this movie just sort of went too far for me.

Story-wise, this is just an extreme odd piece to watch. Halve of the time you really don't understand what is going on and what some of the intentions are. But I guess that's also part of the charm of this movie and a reason why you can watch it over and over again, exploring and understanding more of its themes and surrealistic elements every time you watch it.

It's a movie that is also obviously criticizing some themes such as against the bourgeois and religion as well as some social critiques. On that level I liked this movie, since it was also effective with it as well.

Perhaps you also shouldn't view this film as an actual film but more as a piece of art, you can watch from different perspective and unleash your own interpretations on it.

As a movie this one is just too lacking, since its an at times almost impossible movie to watch and follow. The dialog and some of the sequences just seem to pop out of nowhere, without making an obvious connection to the movie as a whole. And as strange as it might sound after criticizing its story, this movie just has too much of a story. "Donkey Xote" was a great dream-like surreal movie, without a story in it. This movie follows a main plot-line with characters in it and does feature dialog. Perhaps I would had liked this film more if it was made as an entirely silent movie instead, or featured no sound but that of a continuous air raid siren. It would had most likely strengthened its surrealistic elements. The movie is now instead not surrealistic enough for my liking.

Probably one of the most bizarre movies you'll ever see, without understanding it....
