However, R-Patz is starring in a movie about one of my favorite people, Salvador Dali, called Little Ashes. There are actually a couple movies about Salvador Dali coming out soon. I don’t know why there is a sudden rush to make Salvador Dali movies, but I will definitely be seeing them all.
Dali is such an inspiring personality. His devotion to being the best at what he does is something I’ve always admired not only in him but in so many other people. I think if people looked up to and wanted to be like Salvador Dali instead of Britney Spears or Lindsay Lohan, this world would be a much more beautiful and better place. I know it’s cliche to say, but when you see someone so dedicated to testing the limits of what is “normal” in a time when Spain and most of Europe was falling a part, you can’t help but be inspired.
I have to say the couple of clips/scenes that I have seen from Little Ashes look really good. Mr. Pattinson looks the part I always thought Dali would be. To be fair, I don’t know much about his love interest or the actor for that matter, so I can’t really say anything about either person.
What I am really liking about the clips is that there isn’t much dialogue. It seems that the director is sort of letting the r and actions speak for themselves. One scene I watched the other day was 2 minutes of the two of them swimming and it was so beautiful to watch. It wasn’t very good quality, but it was beautiful from what I could see. Neither of them were speaking. With very little dialogue (if any?) in these clips, I have still been mesmerized and interested throughout what I was watching. The cinematographer has a crucial role in making scenes like that work, and it seems as if they have thus far.
I am hoping it opens nationwide so that I get a chance to see it tomorrow. Check out the trailer here (embedding has been disabled by every video I could find). If it opens in your area, definitely go see it!
