Storyline

"The Death of Salvador Dali" brings the paranoiac, flamboyant Dali into the office and head-space of an unsuspecting Sigmund Freud. When Salvador seeks Freud's assistance to inject madness into his art, tables are turned, student becomes teacher, and doctor becomes patient. Unwittingly subjected to chaos, deception, and guns, Freud and madness itself become mere ingredients in Dali's grand, secret agenda. Written by Delaney Bishop

Fun for fans of surrealism, just don't take it seriously!
25 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This short film is a lot of fun for art nerds like me. If you aren't as familiar with surrealism then you would probably be like 'who the hell are all these people?' So long as you don't take it seriously you will probably enjoy it. Parts of it seem almost like a music video and in the end it doesn't give you much meaning but it is fun to view for 20 minutes.

The actor who plays Salvador Dali does a great job imitating his pompous manic egomania. Dita Von Teese doesn't do as well playing Gala in my opinion. I realize it is a bit unrealistic that everyone speaks English in this film (like I said, don't take it too seriously) but at least the other actors use accents reflecting their characters' nationalities. Dita Von Teese just uses her American accent. Gala Dali was born and raised in Russia in actuality. Anyway, for $2 on Itunes I would say this film is definitely worth it if you are into Dali and surrealism.
