This is a puzzling film. It's magnificently shot. But there is next to no information. If you did not know who Gaudi was, you would be lost. Turns out I was in Barcelona a couple of years ago and read up on Gaudi. The photography is stunning but I still want to know more. I saw a lot of Gaudi's buildings in Barcelona but had no idea there were this many. The movie tells nothing about the man. For example, his crypt. I think that's what it was. They never said. What was the story behind it. (Gaudi died after being hit by a streetcar.) His work was unique. Oddly enough, although he was famous, no one ever picked up and built on his style as they did with, say, Frank Lloyd Wright. If I was shooting a movie about an alien planet, his buildings would be the perfect set. They have a Ray Bradbury quality. You wonder what he may have been smoking when he designed them. Having said that, this probably would be right behind Rocky Horror Picture Show as an ideal film for toking up. It's well worth watching if only for the brilliant camera work.
