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.

Critic Reviews for Endless Poetry (Poesía Sin Fin)

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (1)

Alejandro Jodorowsky's 'Endless Poetry' is the most accessible movie he has ever made, and it may also be the best. It's Felliniesque and moving.

May 15, 2016 | Full Review…

The director uses a rich color palette to depict his past misadventures, staging the scenes with gusto and populating the indecorous settings with occasional stylized choreographies and a few bizarre characters.

June 14, 2017 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Certainly, while Endless Poetry is not without its trademark Jodorowsky surrealism, its weirdness is reined in, favouring instead a sincerity and quite possibly even sentimentality.

January 12, 2017 | Full Review…

Most of the film is as shallow and silly as it sounds, but it's rarely boring and it generally looks quite vibrant.

We are not worthy of Jodorowsky: we never have been.

January 10, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

This bullishly played saga has enough quirky detail, audacious incident and visual panache to sweep the storyline through its less persuasive phases.
