Alejandro Jodorowsky, the man who brought us the surreal classics such as El Topo, The Holy Mountain & Santa Sangre.
Now once again I ask the dull question of:
Has his films been released on DVD and if so what would be included as extras?
I'm beggining to think I should post better topics but I'm just too damned unoriginal but have a fuck load of questions to ask to all the DVD maniacs here.
Once again, thanks in advance.

Only FANDO AND LIS was released on DVD. Others will probably never come out on DVD in Jodorowskys lifetime. And if it does, it wount be through Anchor Bay either, never ever will come out on AB for a reason. When its OK to release them, it will probably through Alan Kleins own label. There is a reason for all this, but I cannot say why, for I dont want to get in a legal trouble.

As ArrowBeach noted, only Fando & Lis is on DVD, from Fantoma. It's got a commentary from Jodorowsky (he doesn't speak very good English, so they've added optional subtitles to it) and a documentary on him from French TV. Picture quality is pretty good, all things considered.

It's such a shame that we can't see these classics on DVD. http://www.horrordvds.com/forum/frown.gif Haven't seen Fando & Lis. Is it still in print? (It's hard to find in stores.)
I heard a rumor that Jodorowsky has a role for Marilyn Manson in his next movie.

I think it's still in print, but it seems to be one of those titles that the online retailers never bother to re-order. I got my copy from Blackest Heart (http://www.blackestheart.com).

Here are a couple online interviews with Jodorowsky from the Chicago Underground Films Festival before and after a screening of Holy Mountain.
