'mad enough to be an artist', 21 June 2007
Author: christopher-underwood from United Kingdom

The perfect documentary. It is made by someone fascinated by his subject and includes valuable contributions from people who are able to speak insightfully about the subject. And then it simply lifts off and goes beyond. We begin traditionally enough with Jodorowsky being interviewed, although we should have known something was going on when the first question is, 'Who are you?' After a big smile Joorowsky, first says that the interviewer cannot ask that question and then points out that you have to be dead to be in a position to answer. He has simply not yet reached a position where he can describe himself. One has to smile too because surely this is what all artists are doing; continuing to try to define themselves and their vision, yes? So we proceed, spellbound and there are conversations with the illustrator, Jean Giraud (Moebius), the mime artist, Marcel Marceau for whom Jodorowsky wrote a piece (reprised in Santa Sangre) and even Peter Gabriel although I'm not really sure why. Then from nowhere, we are talking tarot and seminars when the documentary implodes as Jodorowsky strides across a crowded room pointing and heading towards us the viewer. No not us the viewer but Louis Mouchet, the man making the documentary. What happens next is nothing short of extraordinary and further illuminates the 'mad enough to be an artist' - Alejandro Jodorowsky. I should also mention that the clips included in the documentary are those scratchy, bleached images that used to be the only way to see this man's films until the recently released, completely restored gems that are now before us.
