About the Movie
After a 23-year hiatus, The Dance of Reality marks the triumphant return of Alejandro Jodorowsky, the visionary Chilean filmmaker behind cult classics El Topo and The Holy Mountain. In the radiantly visceral autobiographical film, a young Jodorowsky is confronted by a collection of compelling characters that contributed to his burgeoning surreal consciousness. The legendary filmmaker was born in 1929 in Tocopilla, a coastal town on the edge of the Chilean desert, where the film was shot. Blending his personal history with metaphor, mythology, and poetry, The Dance of Reality reflects Jodorowsky's philosophy that reality is not objective but rather a "dance" created by our own imaginations.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Something very close to a masterpiece.
Fresh: Proof that the legendary provocateur is still a font of out-there invention.
Fresh: A lot of the film doesn't quite click, either as dream imagery or something more conventional. But there's a spirit and a yearning in it that's undeniable and bracing.
Fresh: It makes sense, in the way that a nightmare makes sense.
The movie was great
The color and scene are very nice
Brilliant imagination and wonderful storytelling
Was expecting a very vivid, creatively crafted story and that’s exactly what it was. Definitely worth a view. While not the single most expressive, imaginative, and surprising exercise in story telling I’ve ever seen, it’s pretty close.
