Synopsis [H]is new film is more of a bildungsroman, something along the lines of THE SORROWS OF YOUNG ALEJANDRO: heartbreak, unrequited love, initiation, artistic self-discovery.4 stars out of 4 -- [I]t feels like it was made with a young man's passion and egoism. Every supporting character is a reflection or abstraction that serves to enrich and support the main character's personal anarchic philosophy.[I]t contains some of the most vividly strange moments you’ll encounter in a movie all year -- wild, hallucinatory bursts of visual and conceptual insanity...[I]t is testament to the relentless energy and undimmed ingenuity of its creator and a moving defense of the prerogatives of the imagination.[I]t basically functions as a primer on the philosophy of the 87-year-old artist, complete with a king-sized helping of poetic touches and the usual visual fetishes that make his work so instantly recognizable.[A] work of transporting charm and feeling. It’s the most accessible movie the director has ever made, and it may also be the best.[Whether the] moments are entirely true, totally fabricated, or representative of some larger, psychological truth doesn’t matter when you’re in the hands of this consummate visual artist.As befits his youthfulness, Alejandro’s tale in this film takes on a more picaresque, jauntier tone than that of the earlier film. But hovering over it all is the old man that the young man will become, appearing on screen on occasion to console his younger self with his retrospective wisdom.This auto-biopic of Chilean actor, author, and filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky chronicles his artistic development in 1940s Santiago, where he falls in with a group of writers who would become the leading lights of modern Hispanic literature. The film was written and directed by Jodorowsky, who cast his son Adan to play himself as a young man.
