Movie Reviews

Pure masterpiece
SmokeOne | New York | 05/04/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Ive never seen a movie like Fando & Lis and never heard of this director Alejendro Jodorwsky, and im glad I found out about him. Its hard to put into words why I liked this film so much, there is so much symbolisim and meaning in every scene its like bizzare poetry. I didnt find this movie boring at all and I didnt have a hard time figuring out what was going on and I dont think you would either. Ive never seen El Topo or Holy Mountain and I dont know if they could top Fando & Lis but it seems to be everyones least favorite of the director. Anyway This is one of the most strange but beautiful films ive ever layed my eyes on, and I cant recommend it enough"
Very weird in a good way

"Fando & Lis is like watching what is going on in someones imagination when they are dreaming. Its very surreal and will have you wondering just were its going to take you next. If your looking for a movie different from what your use to watching, buddy this is the movie for you.
Available in the new Jodorowsky box set from Anchor Bay/ABCK

"This DVD is now available in the Anchor Bay/ABCKO box set. The Anchor/ABCKO transfer is better than the original Fantoma release. The documentary on the Fantoma release is also included on the Anchor Bay disc, and the commentary is the same here as it is on the Anchor/ABCKO release. Unfortunately, this disc is not available seperately (like El Topo and The Holy Mountain are) from Anchor Bay. You have to buy the box set to get it. Fando is a great film, quite brilliant in its own way. It's been rarely seen since it caused a riot at the Acupulco Film Festival in 1968. It was subsequently banned in Mexico, and presumed lost. Thankfully, it isn't. The Fantoma release did come with a nice booklet about Jodorowsky and a reproduction of the original press material for Fando; the Anchor Bay edition doesn't. So, should you upgrade to the box set? Personally, I would say yes."
