I just picked up the shiny, new, official El Topo DVD and... my player can't read the disc. My very standard, will-play-anything-even-my-bootleg-of-El-Topo DVD player will not even attempt to read it. Anybody else having these problems?


EDIT: I checked around, and apparently it's just my player that won't play it.

I'm a little worried that I might have made a bad decision here. In haste and excitement I pre-ordered the Jodo boxed set on amazon.com. It says that anchor bay is putting it out on May first. Now that I think about it Im thinking I should wait for Abkco's version of it, just to be on the safe side. I dont even see evidence of the box set on Anchor Bays site. Well either way here's what I am excited about:

I has to miss the Chicago showings of El Topo and Holy Mountain back in March, luckily for me though next friday and saturday they are playing in Iowa City at the Bijou theatre. I'm going to have a boner all next week.

Here's a three part Jodo interview found on YouTube, one of the few not in Spanish or French...

BTW, if you happen to be in the Portland, OR area in the next 2 weeks, El Topo and The Holy Mountain are showing at the Clinton Street Theater in southeast Portland.

Well, you can preorder them now, at least. The pages are pretty sparse, but the official release date is May 1.

In the theaters [Feb. 14th, 2007|10:39 am]
Alejandro Jodorowsky - Film Director

Just wanted to post and say I saw both El Topo and Holy Mountain in the theatre last week. I must say the prints are excellent. Far better than I would have imagined. Certainly an improvement over the third generation dubs I have seen in the past. The only thing that detracts is the scene transitions in Holy Mountain are sometimes abrupt, though I doubt it would have been possible to fix that. Otherwise, absolutely amazing!

articles/books on Santa Sangre? [Feb. 11th, 2007|10:43 pm]
Alejandro Jodorowsky - Film Director
hey guys and gals, i hope to pool your illustrious knowledge of all things jodorowsky. in short, i need your help.

question: can anyone point me towards a decent article or book about Santa Sangre?

I'm showing this film to my students in a couple of weeks and have found there is a surprising (and highly unfortunate) lack of coverage on this great movie. anything from an in-depth interview to a critical analysis piece would be great. if i can't find anything i'll have to depend on outside references/influences like jungian dream symbols and dali-esque imagery.

anything and everything would be greatly appreciated (as well as any suggestions for additional outside text). thanks!
