The Films of Alejandro Jodorowsky
LA DANZA DE LA REALIDAD
Chile, France | 2013 | Alejandro Jodorowsky
Alejandro Jodorowsky’s prequel to Endless Poetry (see 7/21 at 9:20) is “something very close to a masterpiece,” according to the NY Times, and “maybe Alejandro Jodorowsky's best film” (Village Voice)." In it, the self-proclaimed “psychomagician” filmmaker returns to the coastal Chile of his childhood to tell a singularly strange tale of growing up. The result is a Spanish-language Amarcord that blends autobiography with metaphor, myth, and poetry, and teems with grotesque and colorful characters, surreal incidents, and indelible images. Subtitles. DCP. 133 min.
