Image Entertainment released Fando And Lis a couple of years ago and it was the only Jodorowsky film on DVD in the US. It's now out of print.

The only other Jodorowsky film scheduled for DVD release is Santa Sangre by Anchor Bay in the UK.

got to see el topo on beat up VHS last week. don't anybody tell me it wasn't a black and white movie. vahrrry intresting. bees! dead bunnies! desert sex. yikes. and alfonso arau.

santa sangre i saw a few years ago. in fact i think i saw it around the same time i saw patricia rozema's when night is falling and i was in circus heaven for a little while.

I wasn't in black and white. Was it at least in widescream???

I saw El Topo when it came out at the Waverly in Greenwich Village at a midnight screening.

Oh my what a trip it was!

very very crappy tape. no i don't think it was widescreen. good thing though, couldn't have picked out any detail through the distortion. i need to see it again.

It's preferable to see El Topo on the big screen. I've not seen it in over 30 years, and have little desire to see it again for fear of diminishing the original experience; I saw it twice; the Waverly was just around the corner from my apartment. There was a considerable amount of intoxicants being passed around outside and inside the theater, and it always played to a packed house. {g}

let's see. packed house. lots of intoxicants. packed house. intoxicants. nope i can't see a connection.

i'll keep an eye out for a better presentation of the movie and see it again, and i'm making... a... note... to be intoxicated at the show.

I saw El Topo a couple of years ago at the amazing Cinema Du Parc in Montreal where it still shows now and again to packed houses. Sadly though people have seen El Topo they have not rounded out thier Jordorowski experience by seeing Holy Mountain and Santa Sangre. I only wish he had done Dune instead of Lynch cause man Lynch didnt even read the bloody books. At any rate I think that repeated viewings of El Topo make it more idiotic and more brilliant. In the words of the man himself, "If you are limited El topo is limited" whatever that means ^_^

one more thing Fando and Lis and Rainbow Thief were money/name making ventures kinda garbage-y but we can only hope that Son of El Topo is born soon. But El Topo was released on DVD in europe by those loveable italians.

You're absolutely correct! It is avaialable in Italy.

I rented Ganja and Hess... I was a bit dissapointed when I joined this service and you had it listed but only for "member purposes". You guys sure jumped on that and a couple weeks later you guys got it. I was really staggered by the film. Talk about an underrated classic. I liked it so much I went and ordered a copy off Amazon. Also noone mentioned Holy Mountain here. WHAT IS UP WITH THAT lol-MS
