Jodorowsky on DVD!
I've been waiting 20 years for this release. Jodorowsky has always been a huge influence on me, and it's a pleasure to finally have authorized versions of his films (restored beautifully and with commentary!). No more VHS bootlegs on Japanese Laserdiscs!
From DVD Talk: "One of cult cinemas holy grails is finally unleashed with this boxed set, The Films of Alejandro Jodorowsky. Long held up in a dispute between Jodorowsky and producer Allen Klein of ABCKO Films, fans have had to make do with inferior bootleg copies for decades. With the two men having finally made peace with one another, Anchor Bay has given us a fantastic boxed set compilation which includes El Topo and The Holy Mountain on authorized DVD for the first time alongside the previously issued Fando Y Lis and accompanied by Jodorowsky first movie, La Cravate, long thought to be lost for good and only recently found in Germany. Completed with the full participation of the director and featuring all new high definition sourced transfers which he personally approved, this boxed set is literally a dream come true for fans of surrealist and unusual cinema."
