La constellation Jodorowsky (1994)

Louis Mouchet

Dokumentarac o okultnom čileanskom režiseru Alejandru Jodorowskom koji je između ostalih snimio i par suludo genijalnih filmova kao što su El topo (1970), The Holy Mountain (1973), i meni najjači Santa sangre (1989). Znači, ko kojim slučajem još nije pogledao ova tri masterpisa lud'la nek se odma' baci a možda je i bolja kombinacija prvo pogledati dokumentarac i uveriti se kakva je to jedinstvena faca i umetnik raznih domena. Inače Jodorowsky danas ima 80 godina i verovali ili ne i dalje snima, tako da 2010. možemo da očekujemo njegov 8. film King Shot. (91 min)

"This is a fascinating documentary about the Chilean writer, director, artist Alexandro Jodorowsky. The interviewer Louis Mouchet asks Jodorowsky a potpourri of questions about his films, philosophy, art, and his opinion and feelings on a host of subjects. Mouchet begins the interview with the simple, but spellbinding, inquisition: "who are you?", to which Jodorowsky replies with a tale of the Emperor of China. He states that when we can define ourselves we cease to be. He shares with us his thoughts and definitions of his lifelong quest for knowledge and the unknown, and his exploits into the Panic Movement in France, and his drawings and art and how he avoided the lynching by the audience at the premiere of Fando and Lis. There are also interviews with his associates Fernando Arrabal, Marcel Marceau, Jean Giraud and the musician Peter Gabriel. We also learn of his plans of the project of Dune, which fell through and was later made by David Lynch. There is also an interesting and amusing look at Jodorowsky as an orator in a class of students, in which Mouchet is invited to join in. It is a fascinating and enlightening look at the life and works of this creative and artistic guru."
