Reception[edit]

The Village Voice wrote a review describing the film as "Something of a passion project, completed decades after an earlier visit by the director, the film is given over to an eager, rolling catalog of Gaudí's fin de siècle works sans much voiceover or any explanatory text".[1] The New York Times wrote that "Much of the imagery in 'Gaudi' is nothing less than astounding in its beauty and boldness, and the blending of a neo-Gothic mysticism and grandeur with an Art Nouveau line and a surreal apprehension of the power of nature".[2]
