Too much going on here for me to unpack in a brief review. I will say it has the scope of a hundred films put into one it seems and while at times, it's invigorating in that regard, it's also somewhat of a beautiful mess.
An introspective and intimate examination of childhood. A poetic fairy tale, visually astounding. Jodorowksy deconstructs and then rebuilds himself as a modern archetype .
I don't think there are many people that liked "Endless Poetry" and did not like "The Dance of Reality", I don't think so, nevertheless I might be one of them. Well, is not that I did not like the latter, I just expected more. The mistake might have been watching them in opposite order. "Endless Poetry" simply contain more magic, more pizzazz, so what might have been a crescendo, became a "decreasendo".
An amazing film this is Jodorowskys masterpiece in my opinion.
The Dance of Reality is a story about finding your own destiny while creating yourself of soul. It is a personal tale with weird elements, confusing details of symbolism, and commentary of the political climate of his youth. Casting his son as his own father and often appearing as himself grounds the film in reality, but the world around you awakens your sensibilities to maximum.
Elaborar o passado como uma saga rica em alegorias e em que as dores são transfiguradas não é pouca coisa. O cuidado visual é encantador. Pena que a visão um pouco mais positiva dos pais é negada no segundo filme. Bom, ainda restam três. :)
Jodorowsky's first film after 23 years is a bizarre semi-autobiography, full of colourful surreal moments, blending, also, history and politics with his personal philosophy. The result is satisfying enough, although the film seems tiresome at times.
I had a feeling this would be a disappointment but how wrong I was. AJ is on top form and with a huge underlying layer of compassion and warmth underlying proceedings, unlike his earlier films perhaps.
Primeira parte da autobiografia de Jodorowski.
Epäsovinnainen kerronta mutta kuitenkin niin tyypillistä Jodorowsky:a. Vain Jodorowskyn päästä voi irrota jotain näinkin sekopäistä. Kyseistä herraa ei kyllä rajoita mitkään häveliäisyyssäännöt.
