Editorial Reviews

One of the most influential and visionary artists of the past century is celebrated in this documentary which covers the highlights of his fascinating career. The format of the film mirrors the restless reality of his life; an inveterate traveller and always on the move, Max Ernst lived and worked in Germany, France, and America. His nomadic way of life kept him searching: "A painter is lost if he finds himself." This film looks at his involvement with the Dadaists in Cologne, his time in Paris, his flight to New York, his life in America, and his return to Europe, revealing the "private, brittle places of refuge" he created at various stages in his life.

This well-made documentary on the great Dada / Surrealist Max Ernst is a must for fans of those movements. This superb artist all to often goes unnoticed by our current mainstream culture, which seems too obsessed with Dali and Duchamp. Sure those two were important, but Max Ernst was probably just as significant in the development of modern art. The DVD quality is very good, and the movie itself is simply terrific. It follows the life and career of DadaMax, with footage of him speaking, and in a Bunuel movie. 5 out of 5.

This excellent documentary of the great German artist has mostly footage of him speaking about his own work, which is for me the very best way to help me understand any artist's work. His remarks as well as the accompanying biographical information are excellently done. The only reason I give it only 4 stars is that he's not one of my favorite artists.

This movie is wunderbar and I watch it over and over. Max Ernst was so amazing and so is this film. The footage is ridiculous, and they have Ernst talk while they show actual film of where he lived or what he experienced. The cinematography is beautiful, the research is awesome-brilliant. Its so great and they show you paintings you can't find even at the library when you are writing a huge paper about Ernst. If you want to understand his paintings, watch this movie and you will see the best example of painting explanation I have ever seen. If only college were this good!!!!
"Who made world history? Not the most reasonable people, the madmen. So if painting is the mirror of a time, it must be mad to have the true image of what a time is." MaxErnst
