Storyline

Filmmaker Jack Bond and Salvador Dali got together at Christmas 1965 to make Dali in New York, a highly entertaining film. Dali devoted two weeks of his life to creating extraordinary scenes for the film, performing "manifestations" with a plaster cast. A thousand ants and one million dollars in cash. When he confronts the feminist writer, Jane Arden, sparks fly. "You are my Slave! I am not your slave. Everybody is my slave." Dali recalls his meeting with Freud, "The last human relationship ever" About his wife, 'But for Gala I would be lying in a gutter somewhere covered with lice" Jim Desmond's dazzling cinematography captures the great artist painting as Flamenco virtuoso Manitas de Plata performs. Dali in New York is a rare treat for anyone who loves film and the living theatre of Dali's surreal universe. Written by Anonymous

When Dali took NYC
3 July 2017 | by AcantiladoSee all my reviews

A painter who's life was dedicated to fleshing out the most outlandish strands in all previous centuries of art, goes to Manhattan in order to relinquish the trauma of his own country. This film, along with other documentaries on Dali, is essential for understanding the motives behind his work and legacy. At once documentary, mockumentary and tribute, this lethargic study of post-marital dysfunction reaches the blissful climax in the now-infamous money scene. Dali took his work seriously and his adoring fans for fools. That is a harsh fact to swallow, considering the temporal focus of his ventures into pottery, jewelry design and fashion. He knew how to mingle with the most superficial non-entities of the NY elite, while staying true to himself. This visual document stands out as a Dali treasure to be coveted by generations. Particularly stingy was the use of insurmountable talents like Lila Karp, who is only given a brief cameo. This isn't an easy VHS to find, but rest assured, as Dali's oeuvre continues to garner admirers worldwide, all of this rare visual treats will become closer to us.
