This movie is wacky, wild, and enjoyable as heck!
9 September 2000 | by stain-8See all my reviews

If you like Salvador Dali, you'll like this flick. It's a very strange film, which is part documentary and part Dali madness. It begins with Dali himself playing a piano, upon which several cats' heads are mounted. When he presses the keys, the cats meow in different tones. From there, Orson Welles' narration tells us a bit about Dali, as we are treated to various shots of Dali's art interspersed with moments of Dali acting goofy. Overall, the movie is very enjoyable to watch, quite humorous, and informative if you're interested in Dali's art and the man himself.
