For all the Goslings and Grays and Gatsbys on the Croisette, for some, the biggest news at Cannes this year is the return of Alejandro Jodorowsky. The French/Chilean filmmaker, the man behind cult hits “El Topo” and “The Holy Mountain,” hasn’t made a film for 23 years, since 1990’s “The Rainbow Thief,” is now all over Cannes; a documentary about his ill-fated attempt to film “Dune” is premiering, and his return to directing with “The Dance Of Reality” just screened this morning.
An adaptation of his own memoir that’s drawing comparisons to Fellini, we haven’t yet caught the film, but the word is pretty good (read Indiewire’s take here). To tide us, and yourselves over, a new trailer for the film has arrived from French distributors Pathe, and it looks very, very promising indeed, not least for Jodorowsky fans. Take a look below.
