Audience Reviews for The Dance of Reality

  • Aug 06, 2013
    Cult movie legend; Alejandro Jodorowsky's 'The Dance of Reality' directly takes Jodorowsky's native Chile setting and brings it up close examining his childhood and early spiritual understanding as well as what type of person his father was. The Film is for one fascinating, very engaging and self centered. Psychedelia and surreal imagery play a significant parts within the film's substance, at times its hard to distinguish the line between fantasy and reality. I can't really recommend this to you if you aren't very familiar with Jodorowsky's other films; Jodorowsky shows things within his films that even the most repentant or squeamish mind may find uncomfortable to watch. If given the right audience were to view this film they won't be disappointed. This is a film Unlike anything I've ever seen; it has left me Awe Struck, amazed disturbed at the same time. One Thing for certain is Alejandro Jodorowsky is like no other film maker thats ever lived.
