The Alejandro Jodorowsky Box Set [$49.98]

by Bill Gibron

29 November 2007

 

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.
