    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 afraid of disappointing others."

    "You're afraid to live."

    "What's the point of living?"

    Following the events of La danza de la realidad, this film continues to tell the story of Alejandro Jodorowsky’s life. This time it tells the story of his life as an adult and his obsession with poetry. This movie isn’t as surreal as Jodorowsky’s past works(it doesn’t even have something bad happening to a penis!) but it’s definitely his most heartfelt and real film. This has become my favorite of Jodorowsky’s films. I really hope he’s able to get another movie funded so he can make this a trilogy about his life. Making the third film about him as a movie director and him making it this far.

    “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.
