Discover Alejandro Jodorowsky’s ‘Endless Poetry’ In International Trailer

Endless Poetry

Because Endless Poetry, Alejandro Jodorowsky‘s follow-up to 2013’s The Dance of Reality, is still awaiting a release in the U.S., this French trailer might be considered a brief satiation. The picture earned largely complimentary notices when it was at Cannes earlier this year, with our own review saying that “the octogenarian’s second part of a planned five-part series — think the tales of Antoine Doinel on acid — heralds the madcap hippie director of El Topo and The Holy Mountain as a master of a deeply personal magic-realist genre, effortlessly moving as it is psychologically and artistically rich.”

While I happened to more or less hate the movie, those who go for Jodorowsky’s self-reflective side will undoubtedly find things to chew on — however grotesque and, in one memorable case, bloody they may be. For your sake, I just hope Endless Poetry gets a domestic distributor’s attention.

See the preview below (via The Movie Box):


Through Alejandro Jodorowsky’s autobiographical lens, Endless Poetry narrates the years of the Chilean artist’s youth during which he liberated himself from all of his former limitations, from his family, and was introduced into the foremost bohemian artistic circle of 1940s Chile where he met Enrique Lihn, Stella Diaz Varín, Nicanor Parra… at the time promising young but unknown artists who would later become the titans of twentieth-century Hispanic literature. He grew inspired by the beauty of existence alongside these beings, exploring life together, authentically and freely. A tribute to Chile’s artistic heritage, Endless Poetry is also 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 life and career to creating spiritual and artistic awareness across the globe.
