The Dance of Reality (Alejandro Jodorowsky, 2014)


By the same token, it’s also a fitting summary of everything that hinders the film’s aspirations to a singular vision. The highly chromatic, ill-fitting series of tableaux admirably abandon the illusion of objectivity (or even a rationally viewed subjectivity) to celebrate the role imagination plays on memory. Yet for a film intended to reflect both its maker’s personal experience and unorthodox aesthetic, so much of The Dance of Reality feels old-hat, begging the question whether something can be surreal if you feel like you’ve seen it before.

  1. A psychomagic movie. The movie itself is a psychomagic act. I recommend to watch it with friends or family, try to think differently this time about what you will watch. Is not a Hollywood movie, and don't expect that. A movie that shows you the universe that we are.
