This puts a wrench in my plans. I can't even find one of his films, except on Fandor, which seems to have his entire output.

1. Long Live Death
2. I Will Walk Like A Crazy Horse


Like bad Jodorowsky. A surrealist button-pusher who comes up well short on depth or meaning and fills the screen with filthy imagery. Being brave enough to show flaming penises, animal mutilation and lots of un-simulated poop doesn't make you profound.

I could not have imagined what bad Jodorowsky could look like. Now I wish I still couldn't.
