Alejandro Jodorowsky is one of the best surrealistic filmmakers we have, and the guy is in his late 80s. When he has a new film coming out, it’s worth paying attention.
With that in mind, here is the trailer for Endless Poetry, a new film he has coming out. So pay attention:
I don’t know what else to say beyond this looks cool and I’m into it. The story appears to be about a young Jodorowsky and his journey toward becoming a poet. Luckily for us, becoming a poet for Jodorowsky doesn’t mean dressing in a beret and hitting up some def open mics, but rather getting super weird with it in a way only Jodorowsky can. And, uh, chopping down a wee tree. I’m in.
Endless Poetry opens nationwide July 24 with an early start in NY and LA July 14.
