The Dance of Reality may be Alejandro Jodorowsky's best film, and certainly, in a filmography top-heavy with freak-show hyperbole and symbology stew, the one most invested in narrative meaning.

The Dance Of Reality represents Jodorowsky in an accessible mode, telling a version of his life story in a way that will allow anyone who's never seen any of his work before [...] to get a good sense of who he is and what he's all about.

Alejandro Jodorowsky never manages to transcend the sense that he's indulging himself and participating in a hollow introspection unworthy of his prior cinema.

More than a return to form, The Dance of Reality deepens its possibilities without sacrificing the macabre freakishness coursing through the director's work -- and that's the prime reason for celebrating its continuation.

A welcome return for an artist who truly deserves the sobriquet El Maestro.

So as flawed as it is throughout, particularly in visual quality, and though it starts to lag toward the end...we found ourselves gladly feasting, occasionally to laugh-out-loud effect, at the groaning banquet table of The Dance of Reality...

A minor success from a major figure.
May 20, 2013
Nostalgia and narcissism from a cinematic Grand Master.

By turns playful, tragic and surprisingly light on its feet, this welcome comeback for Alejandro Jodorowsky should keep its maker fully booked on the fest circuit.

In this movie, the director is bidding farewell to his past, and to his childhood, and perhaps to the world. It is an arresting spectacle.
