The Films of Alejandro Jodorowsky

POESÍA SIN FIN
Chile, France | 2016 | Alejandro Jodorowsky

ENDLESS POETRY

Alejandro Jodorowsky’s follow-up to his autobiographical film The Dance of Reality (see 7/29 at 8:35) picks up the story of his life when he is a young man in his 20s, as he tries to find himself and his way in the world. Having moved from the sticks to Santiago with his repressive father (who doesn’t want a poet in the family) and his mother (who sings all her dialogue in an operatic voice), young Alejandro (now played by the director’s youngest son, Adan) finds friendship and sustenance in the capital city’s bohemian quarter, an eye-opening, mind-expanding night world of art and sex, poetry, passion, and possibility. Jodo’s familiar phantasmagorical touches and his beloved human “freaks” add spice to this emotionally stimulating, visually stunning stew. “The most accessible movie [Jodorowsky] has ever made, and it may also be the best…Felliniesque and moving.” –Variety. Adults only! Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 128 min.
