Alejandro Jodorowsky’s last movie hits Tokyo

A couple of weeks ago we were talking about David Lynch, a master of making audience feel uncomfortable. Today, we are going to talk about another well-known filmmaker of the bizarre and surreal. His name is Alejandro Jodorowsky, and rather than a filmmaker itself he’s considered a spiritual guru. During his long career he made films such as Fando y Lis (1968), El Topo (1970), Holy Mountain (1973) or Santa Sangre (1989), are considered something unique in its kind and, for many, authentic master pieces. And better not to mention Dune, a project that was never finished but that created many expectations.

Now, and after 14 years since “his” last movie (The Rainbow Thief, pse..), Jodorowsky is back to the game with The Dance of Reality, which kind of tells the story of himself and his land in a metaphorical way. I haven’t seen it yet so can’t tell you whether is good or not, but I’m sure is something totally worth to watch. The movie is being screened at Cinema Qualite until the next 12th August, so hurry up! 🙂
