Default The Films of Alejandro Jodorowsky -- Arrow Video, 2019

“More than spectacle. An experience for all of your life.” Exciting news for fans of cult cinema -- Arrow Video are slated to issue a remastered collection of several essential works from cinematic mystic Alejandro Jodorowsky! According to his son Brontis Jodorowsky, the box set will contain new 4K restorations of the surreal shocker FANDO & LIS (1968), his midnight movie trailblazer EL TOPO (1970) and the allegorical masterpiece THE HOLY MOUNTAIN (1973). The actor also states he contributed a long interview to join an expected bounty of extras, and, “lots of memories came back!” Watch this space for more details as they become available!

damn this is incredible news. Kind of pissed that I bought Holy Mountain recently. But oh well. No doubt Arrow will do it right.

Too bad Arrow can't do Santa Sangre as all BD releases of it aren't that great in terms of PQ and AQ. But I'm in for this set!

Arrow hitting a homerun with this! I do wish it came with Santa Sangre though because that's one of my all-time favorites. Still grabbing it in any case.

For “El Topo” and “The Holy Mountain” prepare for a wild ride.

I love "The Dance of Reality" and "Endless Poetry". However when I first saw "El Topo" and "The Holy Mountain" about 15 years ago I was bored to tears. I may have to give them another go.

I’ll admit that “El Topo” can definitely drag a little bit but I enjoy “The Holy Mountain” for its surreal and philosophical shitposting.

Awesome! I've had the Anchor Bay Blu-Rays since they were released, but I'm intrigued as to what Arrow can offer...

You must watch them high or inebriated for optimal effect, tbh.

Phenomenally good news, I've been wanting Arrow to do these for years now. Hopefully they also restore Tusk, I know Jodorowsky has said that he'd like the opportunity to re-cut it.

They should include soundtrack CDs so I can do away with the Anchor Bay DVD set I still own (since Fando Y Lis did not get a BD release).

You've never seen Holy Mountain or El Topo? You are in for one weird and wild ride. It's going to be awesome.

I'm so happy Arrow was able to get these.

I haven't seen them either. They have been sitting in my Amazon wishlist for some time now. I just never pull the trigger. I always have some "hey, a squirrel!" moment and something else catches my eye. I am definitely going to pick this up, however.
