The Dance of Reality (unrated)

After making an indelible mark on pop culture with such late ’60s-early ’70s provocations as Fando and Lis, El Topo and The Holy Mountain, the Chilean filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky seemed to disappear. While other directors (Ken Russell, Nicolas Roeg, David Lynch) followed his lead and started experimenting with trippy dream narratives, Jodorowsky spent several years trying to get an adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune made without luck. His three subsequent films — Tusk, The Voice Thief and the underrated Santa Sangre — barely left a trace. Although he kept busy writing books, sketching comics and mounting stage plays, Jodorowsky’s career as a filmmaker seemed to be over.
