The 'many faces' of -- and films about -- Dalí

His life was as wacky and dramatic as a Hollywood script, so it's no surprise filmmakers would be drawn to the story of Surrealist prankster Salvador Dalí, the self-inventive global art star and architect of modern celebrity culture.
But three films about him? Starring such big names as Twilight's heartthrob vampire Robert Pattinson, Antonio Banderas and maybe even Al Pacino?
Somewhere, the publicity-loving Dalí must be gleeful in his grave. He could soon be the first artist in the history of art to be the subject of multiple feature films in English about some aspect of his long and notorious life.
