The Films of Alejandro Jodorowsky

If you’re a Tarot reader, you probably know that Alejandro Jodorowsky is a Tarot master.

He’s the author of The Way of Tarot and Psychomagic, helped restore the Tarot of Marseille and regularly speaks about the Tarot and its symbolism.

But he’s better known throughout the world for his films.

The 1970’s classics, El Topo and The Holy Mountain, are two especial fan favourites. Both are surreal classics dripping in occult symbolism.

Until 2007, neither were available in North America or the UK.

Last month, the Blu-ray version of The Films of Alejandro Jodorowski was released. It includes both films and special goodies like:

Holy Mountain original theatrical trailer
Holy Mountain deleted scenes with commentary by Alejandro Jodorowsky
The Tarot with commentary by Alejandro Jodorowsky
Holy Mountain restoration process
•Feature commentary by Alejandro Jodorowsky
•English, French, Spanish, Brazilian, and Portuguese Subtitles

It’s already available as a DVD box set, but this new release gave me an excuse to post the fabulous trailer for El Topo

  • Believe it or not, I first learned about Jodorowsky from my husband who was a huge fan of his films. I learned about the tarot connection from him too.

    My husband will love that this is released! Thanks for posting this!

      Glad you like it! You and your man have some movie watching to do.

      Maybe we should plan a trip to Paris. I’d love to see him speak in person. xog
