Films of Alejandro Jodorowsky

Alejandro Jodorowsky created some of the most spectacular pieces of surreal cinema in the 6o's and 70's. He is most renowned for his films El Topo and The Holy Mountain. El Topo was watched by John Lennon at a midnight movie theatre. Afterwards he agreed to fund Jodorowsky's next project, which turned into the Holy Mountian. The films have been largely unavailable up until recently, when they were released in a digitally remastered DVD collection. You can watch the trailers for both films, some additional clips from The Holy Mountian and an interview with the director by Jonathan Ross.
