this is one of those casting choices where i see it and go, “omg, of course Ben Kingsley should play Dalí! BRILLIANT!!”

i can’t wait for this.

Also, this clip of him talking about his experiences and approach to Dalí is really good:


And with Barbara Sukowa playing his wife, I expect great things from the film.


But can he be as good as Emo Philips?

It doesn’t sound like they’re acknowledging the fact that Dali was a fascist and a misogynistic abuser of women.

Like Gaugin, Picasso, and so many more, Dali is a another ubiquitous “great” man of art history best set aside in favor of marginalized artists doing more interesting and less ethically fraught work.
