The Dance of Reality - New Jodorowsky film

Didn't see anyone mention this, but I know the guy has fans here. So...

There's a new Alejandro Jodorowsky film out called "The Dance of Reality"

http://danceofrealitymovie.com/

It looks to be a surreal biopic about Jodorowsky's youth, sort of like his version of Fellini's "Amarcord" perhaps? The trailer looks pretty stunning. And the early reviews have been pretty positive.

It doesn't seem to have made its way here yet. But I am keeping excited eyes peeled.

Also, in case anyone is interested, Humanoids just released a batch of new comics from Jodowosky, including a ridiculously priced signed and numbered Deluxe edition of the latest chapter in the Incal series.

Just saw this tonight. If you are a fan of Jodorowsky go see this. It is stunningly beautiful and moving. It's not the incredible spiritual mind-fuck that is Holy Mountain, but it's definitely on par with Sante Sangra and may even be better.

There's a lot to digest on this one, but the psychological ritual that we get to watch Jodorowsky perform is amazing. On the surface it's a rather surreal story of a young Alejandro and his relationship with his abusive father. In moments of extreme stress or frustration, the older Alejandro, played by the director, appears to comfort the younger by whispering wisdom into his ears. Add to that, that the abusive father is played by Jodorowsky's own son, Brontis (and Alejandro's son Axel also appears as a mystic who inspires the younger Alejandro) and you can see how immensely cathartic and emotional the whole thing must have been to put together.

It's all really powerful and full of some pretty amazing moments. And, it's still full of some pretty wacky decisions, like his mother sings all her lines operatically and it works really well.

I can not recommend this one highly enough. Easily one of the most beautiful films I have seen in years, if not decades.
