The Films Of Alejandro Jodorowsky (The Holy Mountain / Fando y Lis and La Cravate): (2 disc set)

synopsis


The Godfather of the ‘midnight movie’ fully-restored and released after 35 years. One of cinema’s most controversial and influential filmmakers Alejandro Jodorwosky’s 1968 debut feature Fando y Lis caused a riot in Mexico; El Topo dragged the hippy generation into the ‘70s and single-handedly invented the ‘midnight movie’ phenomenon; and, with the pop-alchemical The Holy Mountain, Jodorowsky tore apart the very fabric of film. Fully restored and available for the first time in 35 years.

The Holy Mountain:
Alejandro Jodorowsky stars as The Alchemist in Holy Mountain--apt self-casting in this psychedelic masterpiece about Jesus searching for enlightenment. Fusing together many of his previously investigated themes, Holy Mountain catalogues a religious icon's surreal journey through magical realms that both mirror reality and verge on the psychotic Financed entirely by John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Holy Mountain is a more associative, more abstract, and better version of El Topo, which also features a protagonist searching for his soul.

Fando y Lis:
Using only one page script and the memory of his stage production, director Alejandro Jodorowsky blended surreal beauty and savage imagery to fashion this bizarre tale of corrupted innocence, sadomasochistic love, and unattainable paradise. Fando and Lis premiered at the 1968 Acapulco Film Festival, inciting a riot that forced the director to flee for his life. In the ensuing scandal, the film was banned. Jodorowsky was branded a heretic, forced ot stand trial and nearly deported.

La Cravate:
In this silent short, a mimed version of Thomas Mann's novella The Transposed Heads, a bereaved wife, through intercession, brings her intellectual husband and virile lover back to life by reattaching their severed heads but mistakenly transposes heads and bodies. This first film from Chilean avant-garde director Alejandro Jodorowsky stars Jean-Marie Proslier, Raymond Devos and Marthe Mercure.
