Set in the 1940s and 50s, in the electric capital city of Santiago, where Alejandro Jodorowsky decides to become a poet and is introduced, by destiny, into the foremost bohemian and artistic circle of the time.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
Digital. Being Jodorowsky an idiosyncratic and extremely identifiable filmmaker, he will never be one that i could appreciate, because of the distance i have in relation to his motives and forms and, above all, by his reiterated impositive expression, which by the extreme explanation of its matrix become unbearable. See, in this case, how poetry is utterly nullified for so much seeking its elaboration.
Endless poetry: endless imagery. I'm drawn into this world, I wanted more - I wanted within. Jodorowsky is one of my favorites, and once again the film felt warm. Somehow it portraits arts and crafts in cinema making, like a scene puppeteer. Great one, Jodo.
it's quite difficult to find the right words to describe this movie. it's easier to be simply felt than to be explained or discussed. Feeling of being taken back into a childhood-like state where every form became just a fragile subject to our imagination and interpretation. Where there were no rules of what the world around us is supposed to look like. One of the most beautiful movies I've ever seen.
A film which ended up being completely underwhelming, despite my already low expectations. Too few scenes of pure inspiration, too little of the magic captured in The Dance of Reality. Some of the scenes played out as though they were directed by Santiago's Tourism Minister, not Alejandro Jodorowsky.
Fresque surréaliste et éclatée à son plein potentiel, la Poésie Sans Fin de Jodorowsky est à l'image de son créateur. Colorée, choquante, assumée et juste assez prétentieuse.
Jodorowsky y raconte une grande partie de sa vie, philosophique et artistique, se définissant lui-même comme un «être de lumière» qui prend son envol grâce à la poésie. De très belles images, une excellente entrée pour apprécier son univers!
If at any point you managed to forget that this is a film about how great Jodorowsky is made by Jodorowsky,the man himself would step in to remind you.Even the moments in which he tried to "humanise" himself felt arrogant, as if the only reason he was showing his "faults" was to prove his own greatness "I'm so great I can laugh at myself".if you are going to blow your own trumpet, don't bust your audience's eardrums.
Dans la continuité de son film précédent avec lequel il forme un étonnant diptyque conceptuel sur la genèse d'une personnalité en devenir, le cinéaste nous propose sa vision mordorée et fantasque d'une existence débordante et débordée d'injonctions libertaires, dans un monde sans cesse en butte aux interdits et aux uniformes... www.cinefiches.com
