Well, the reason the movie is not set during Dali's prime is very simple. The movie is not meant to a biography, but rather it is a tale of the dark side of Dali. According to the Author of the corresponding book, "the artist authorized forgeries of his own work as a means of funding his so-called "sex circus" of surreal orgies with young actresses." The script will never be approved by the Gala-Salvador Dalí Foundation as it is nearly an insult to the great legacy left by Dali. So, the question is, is this an informative piece of literature based on a time in a great artists life. Or, is this an expose attempting to dethrone and degrade the public view of Salvador Dali.
Wonderful movie idea and cast, but why 60's-80's? "Tuna Fishing" and "Torero Alucinogeno" maybe, or possibly Because Dali is clearly misunderstood and has to be examined in reverse order as his method exceeds all preceding orders... You assume Dali lost something when he attempted to transcend Surrealism but what Dali lost he never had so he attempted to salvage his Hierarchy, he gripped Art's bosom for an instant and forced it to milk... A single drop.
Collectively and otherwise, 20th Century Art legitimizes only one thing to the 21st. That matter being The Death of Art.
"Nothing will ever satisfy the world anymore, not even the pictosurial atoms that I am alchemizing."
This film will focus on the worst times of Dali's life.
Why not make a film that features Dali in his youth when his work was placed at the Museum of Modern Art?
