The Savage Surrealism of Fando y Lis

I contributed an essay on Fando y Lis and surrealism to the new monumental Alejandro Jodorowsky box set from Arrow.

Jodorowsky’s first feature Fando y Lis (1968), an infernal adaptation of Fernando Arrabal’s Panic play, psychedelic Western El Topo (1970) and delirious spiritual initiation The Holy Mountain (1973) are presented in new 4K restorations, and accompanied by a treasure trove of extras, with contributions from Mark Pilkington and Ben Cobb as well as interviews and audio commentaries by Jodorowsky himself. Unmissable!
