Bring it [Dec. 2nd, 2008|10:02 am]
Alejandro Jodorowsky - Film Director

So I was watching Zeitgeist (see it if you havent! www.zeitgeistmovie.com) with my lady friend last night and toward the end they started to talk about this little microchip technology that keeps track of your finances, identification, etc. This would supposedly be forced upon us as our authorities worked to form a global government. We went on to talk about movies that are based on this premise. I couldnt come up with a huuuuge list of movies but the best I think of was Brazil, and Escape from New York. So I thought it would be fun to ask you wonderful community cohorts if you can list your favorite movies based on this type of thing. GO!

The Spiritual Journey of Alejandro Jodorowsky [May. 16th, 2008|03:51 pm]
Alejandro Jodorowsky - Film Director


Jodorowsky’s memoirs of his experiences with Master Takata and the group of wisewomen--magiciennes--who influenced his spiritual growth

• Reveals Jodorowsky turning the same unsparing spiritual vision seen in El Topo to his own spiritual quest

• Shows how the author’s spiritual insight and progress was catalyzed repeatedly by wisewoman shamans and healers

In 1970, John Lennon introduced to the world Alejandro Jodorowsky and the movie, El Topo, that he wrote, starred in, and directed. The movie and its author instantly became a counterculture icon. The New York Times said the film “demands to be seen,” and Newsweek called it “An Extraordinary Movie!” But that was only the beginning of the story and the controversy of El Topo, and the journey of its brilliant creator. His spiritual quest began with the Japanese master Ejo Takata, the man who introduced him to the practice of meditation, Zen Buddhism, and the wisdom of the koans. Yet in this autobiographical account of his spiritual journey, Jodorowsky reveals that it was a small group of wisewomen, far removed from the world of Buddhism, who initiated him and taught him how to put the wisdom he had learned from his master into practice.

At the direction of Takata, Jodorowsky became a student of the surrealist painter Leonora Carrington, thus beginning a journey in which vital spiritual lessons were transmitted to him by various women who were masters of their particular crafts. These women included Doña Magdalena, who taught him “initiatic” or spiritual massage; the powerful Mexican actress known as La Tigresa (the “tigress”); and Reyna D’Assia, daughter of the famed spiritual teacher G. I. Gurdjieff. Other important wisewomen on Jodorowsky’s spiritual path include María Sabina, the priestess of the sacred mushrooms; the healer Pachita; and the Chilean singer Violeta Parra. The teachings of these women enabled him to discard the emotional armor that was hindering his advancement on the path of spiritual awareness and enlightenment.

La Constellation Jodorowsky [Jan. 9th, 2008|10:56 pm]
Alejandro Jodorowsky - Film Director
La Constellation Jodorowsky is a wonderfully candid documentary about Jodo by French filmmaker Louis Mouchet. I think it was attached in the special features of the old Fando Y Lis DVD. You can still get it if you buy the recent boxed set, but it's not independently for sale. Although I just uploaded the film, in it's entirety, to altertube.tv:

if you must bash me, please do so just dont be too harsh.

I just recently got into Alejandro Jodorowsky thanks to Santa Sangre, his movies are hard to find in vid stores.

anyone mind hooking me up with a copy of El Topo, Fando Y Liz,& Holy Mountain, i wanna check them out first before i commit into buying the $50 box set.

if anyone has a heart and can lend a helping hand to a poor college student, please let me know

thank you all.
