Movie Info

Through renowned father of the midnight movies Alejandro Jodorowsky's intensely personal lens, ENDLESS POETRY tells the story of his years spent as an aspiring poet in Chile in the 1940's. Against the wishes of his authoritarian father, the 20 year-old Alejandro Jodorowsky (Adan Jodorowsky, Alejandro's son), leaves home to pursue his dream of becoming a poet, and is introduced into the bohemian and artistic inner circle of Santiago where he meets Enrique Lihn (Leandro Taub), Stella Diaz Varín (Pamela Flores), Nicanor Parra (Felipe Rios), all unknown at the time, but who would later become driving forces of twentieth century Hispanic literature. Living with these inspirational artists, Jodorowsky's exploration of his inner feelings takes him on a journey of sensual experimentation leading him to realize his innermost desires and passions. Continuing the autobiographical story he began in THE DANCE OF REALITY, ENDLESS POETRY is an ode to the quest for beauty and inner truth, as a universal force capable of changing one's life forever, written by a man who has dedicated his existence to creating spiritual and artistic awareness, told through Jodorowsky's unique surreal and psychedelic visual language.

All Critics (50) | Top Critics (11)

By the time Alejandro confronts his father...it occurs that self-indulgence is sort of the point and that it just might be in the service of something that is actually, simply profound. Jodorowsky is dramatizing his life, just like everybody else does.

if you consider Jodorowsky's work excessive and mannered, you'll probably find this to be a slog.

July 27, 2017 | Full Review…

Tinged with madness and heartbreak, "Endless Poetry" is the unmistakable byproduct of, as the character of Alejandro puts it, "a heart capable of loving the entire world."

July 27, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Loopy, irreverent, and more intensely personal than anything its mystic creator has invented before.

July 17, 2017 | Full Review…

The filmmaker's outsize, and sometimes unnerving, stylistic choices jump into the frame and vanish just as quickly.

Endless Poetry feels like the product of a revitalized old master. There's a generosity of spirit, and clarity of intent that gives shape to the the film's rambling narrative, and broad-brushstrokes characterizations.
