While his infamous Midnight Movie El Topo remains an established cult classic, few actually know the true cinematic legacy of this celebrated surrealist. Beginning life as a radical and poet, Jodorowsky fell into film as a means of extending his performance art pretensions. The results remain some of the most confounding masterworks ever conceived. This brilliant box set collects all his early works – the short film La Cravate and his three major ‘60s/’70s epics (Fando y Lis, El Topo, and The Holy Mountain). Visually arresting, philosophically strident, and brutally strange, they stand as excellent examples of this director’s unquestioned vision.
