The Dance of Reality
Drama • NR • 2013 • 2 hr 10 min
A truly masterful exercise on directing and visual storytelling, rich in art and metaphors.
Jodorowsky is a master of powerful symbolic imagery, most of the scenes are burned into my mind and I only watched it once, many years ago.
I have utmost respect for Jodorowsky, and this is proof that he is a fantastic story teller in addition to having an eye for visuals.
Unorthodox aproach to story telling, but unique; unfolding like an adventure.
If you like this movie,you see other movies of this director.
One of the most creative uses of imagery that pose both disturbing and childlike images that will cement itself within your head
It’s a weirdly enjoyable adventure that’s definitely worth a watch.
Jodorowsky’s semi-autobiographical film feels intimate and epic
A Heartwarming, beautiful and surreal autobiography from a somewhat unreliable narrator. Well worth a look.
Surrealistic magic , A very good depiction of hypocritic communism . Thought provoking though . Jorodowsky's life in artistic way .
“Having broken away from my illusory self, I was desperately seeking a path and a meaning to life.” This phrase perfectly sums up Alejandro Jodorowsky’s biographical project: reconstituting the incredible adventure of his life. Alejandro Jodorowsky was born in 1929 in Tocopilla, a coastal town on edge of the Chilean desert, where this film was shot. It was there where he discovered the fundamentals of reality, as he underwent an unhappy and alienated childhood as part of an uprooted family.
A portrait of Alejandro Jodorowsky’s young adulthood, set in the 1940s and 50s, in the electric capital city of Santiago. There, he decides to become a poet and is introduced, by destiny, into the foremost bohemian and artistic circle of the time.
