Raoul Ruiz employs the same free camera movement and loose narrative style that made Time Regained such a masterpiece for this less successful but still worthwhile portrait of Gustav Klimt, the revolutionary artist whose work scandalized, thrilled and enlightened pre-World War I Vienna.   stars as the artist, suffering from syphilis and enduring all manner of hallucinatory relationships as he navigates his way through upper class European society in an effort to remain true to his singularity of vision. It’s a stunningly beautiful effort, richly colourful and decadent to the hilt, but its main drawback is that it doesn’t focus enough on the great artist’s work, or on his process of creating that work. Lovers of renegade art-house cinema will be in heaven, while the more narratively-oriented will find the entire experience frustrating and confusing.
