4 Shots From 4 Films: Special Alejandro Jodorowsky Edition


4 Shots From 4 Films is just what it says it is, 4 shots from 4 of our favorite films. As opposed to the reviews and recaps that we usually post, 4 Shots From 4 Films lets the visuals do the talking!

Today is the 91st birthday of one of cinema’s greatest surrealists, Alejandro Jodorowsky.  When it comes to Jodorowsky, finding 4 shots from 4 films is not the difficult thing.  The difficult thing is trying to narrow down all of the options to just four.  Along with directing the first midnight film, El Topo, Jodorowsky was also the first director to make a serious effort to bring Dune to the big screen.  No offense to either David Lynch or Denis Villeneuve but it’s hard to think of any other director who would have been more suited to the task.  Sadly, Jodorowsky’s Dune may never be made but he’s still responsible for a filmography that continues to intrigue and outage to this day.
