3D movies can be polarizing. Some love them, some hate them. Personally, I kept taking my glasses off during Up, and being frustrated at having to leave them on. That was the last time I went to a 3D movie, and I don’t know when I’ll go again. I just find the whole experience to be kind of annoying. So, it shouldn’t have surprised me to learn that there is historical evidence to explain why 3D makes me uncomfortable: Nazis were all about 3D filmmaking. Two thirty minute 3D films from Joseph Goebbels propaganda ministry were unearthed, and are being used in Phillip Mora’s upcoming documentary How The Third Reich Was Recorded. Mora, who’s no stranger to 3D himself (he’ll be helming an upcoming 3D biopic about Salvador Dali), say that the quality of the restored films are fantastic, and feature frolicking girls and bratwursts being cooked. Hmm, maybe this whole Nazi thing wasn’t so bad after all!* (AV Club, The Guardian)

*Apologies to my entire family for publishing that line.

Start your melting clocks and get ready for the countdown, because there’s a nontraditional, nonlinear, 3D Salvador Dali biopic coming soon. It stars Alan Cumming as the absurdist painter/artist. For those of you who aren’t blown away by the recent crop of converted 3D, or visually epic 3D films that are short on story/heart, this seems like a clear alternative.

The film unfolds as Dali finds himself hospitalized after injuries sustained in a fire. According to The SMH, “a semi-conscious Dali overhears a doctor suggesting what an extraordinary movie his life would make and so his mind—and the film—begins to soar, occasionally breaking the so-called ‘fourth wall’’ when the artist converses directly with his audience.”

I’m in! I don’t even know that much about the artist beyond some of his better known works, but with Alan Cumming playing him, Judy Davis playing his one love Gala, and Phillip Mora writing and directing, I’m on board. It will be really interesting to see a 3D film that is INTENTIONALLY confusing. Transformers “saga,” I’m looking at you. (The Playlist)
