Here’s their word [...]

Prescient Poetry

If you’re following this blog you’re probably a big fan of the films of Alejandro Jodorowsky. I love the man and his movies and last night, thanks to Antonia, we received a package from the master himself. It contained a postcard, a poster, and a hand-printed thank you note along with three bills of the [...]

Jodorowsky’s Poetic Money

Alejandro Jodorowsky is one of my favorite filmmakers, but that won’t come as a surprise to anyone who follows my posts. I’ve seen all of the master’s films and was particularly excited by last year’s release of both The Dance of Reality and the documentary Jodorowsky’s Dune. The former was Jodo’s most recent feature film [...]

Holy Mountain Architect

You might not recognize the name Luis Barragán, but any student of counterculture and edgy film will recognize the great master’s work. The architect’s monumental sculptures play a key role in Alejandro Jodorowsky’s epic The Holy Mountain though most viewers might assume they are looking at stage sets. Here’s some Wiki… The Torres de Satélite [...]

Hermanos de Sangre

I’m planning to cover the Nashville International Film Festival for a variety of papers and blogs again this year. One of the films I’m most excited about is The Voice Thief by Alejandro Jodorowsky’s son, Adan who played the young boy in Santa Sangre. Here is a profile of Adan who is a musician in [...]

Jodorowsky’s Lost Movie

1980 wasn’t a great year for Alejandro Jodorowsky. Having just barely survived the end of the 1970′s when the film that was to be his magnum opus — an adaptation of Frank Herbert’s classic Dune — fell apart for the final time, Jodo was anxious to get back to work. He agreed to make a [...]

The Holy Mountain at 40

Getting some links together for the latest Coincidence Control Network podcast, I was shocked that we hadn’t talked about the 40th anniversary of my favorite Alejandro Jodorowsky film The Holy Mountain. I’ve mentioned the film in previous posts, but this important birthday is one that must be observed with reverence and open eyes. Check out [...]

Joe Nolan’s Paradise

Here is the premiere of the new video for my song “Paradise.” Conceived, directed and edited from public domain footage found at Archive.org, “Paradise” combines images of San Francisco in 1941 with shots from the city captured in 1968 during that era’s counter-cultural revolution. The video takes the song’s declarative chorus as a jumping-off point [...]

Alejandro Jodorowsky: Star Man

Alejandro Jodorowsky is one of my favorite artists of all time. One reason why I love this guy’s work so much is that he does it all: writer, director, actor, mime, magician, comic book author, tarot card expert. He’s completely brilliant and hilarious, and both of those traits are present in his films – which [...]
