    A sequel to my least favorite Jodorowsky film (The Dance of Reality), Endless Poetry ends up being my favorite Jodorowsky film. Absolutely bizarre and absurd in a way that only Jodorowsky can make work. One of the most personal films I've ever seen from an auteur.

    دومین قسمت از تریلوژی اتوبیوگرافی سینماگر مؤلف و طناز این سال های سینمای خاک گرفته آمریکای جنوبی؛الخاندرو خودوروفسکی.با لحنی عمدتا مبتنی بر رئالیسم جادویی،آنگونه که در "دزد رنگین کمان" دیده بودیم،در تلفیق نامحسوس با مؤلفه های سینمای سوررئال.خودوروفسکی مشتاقم کرد تا عقب گرد کنم و یه سری به فیلم های دیگه اش بزنم تا ببینم چه مسیری رو طی کرده که اینقدر جسورانه و سراپا، با ذهنی باز و سیال فیلم اخیرش رو ساخته.فیلم همچنین هجویست بر دنیای روشنفکری؛اما نه اونطور که انتظارش رو دارید.

    “I’m saving my hymen for a man with a divine face arriving from the mountains”.

    Uneven, excessive, sometimes embarrassing but consistent moving. The adjective fellinesque will be throw a lot about this as it was about Jodo’s previous The Dance of Reality, but that don’t makes justice to what Jodorowsky is going for, particular the manner he use his discreet camera movements to wave emotion as well as he sense of place. I thought my misgivings about Dance of Reality was partial about my interest on Jodorowsky the artist be much large than Jodorowsky the man to care for such ambitious autobiographical project, but he is much more at home here. That he is a man lost in time just makes this remembrance more affecting. A heart who can embrace the whole world, indeed.

    I'll write something longer when I'm not about to konk out after a long 20 hour day, but in brief: Jodorowsky is an artist, and that's all there is to it. What a wild, emotional but genuine article this was. Funny, crazy, tragic,manic, thoughtful, and introspective by design and yet its like the ultimate Movie Memoir.

    Also, as an addendum ... First time I can recall since Dario Argento that a filmmaker got one of his kids to be stark naked in one of his movies (I mean as an adult, I know El Topo counts too)
