By G. Allen Johnson - Wednesday Sep 13, 2017

In his early 1970s heyday, Chilean-French director, poet, actor and comics writer Alejandro Jodorowsky was the definition of a cult filmmaker.After an ambitious attempt to adapt Frank Herbert’s “Dune” for the screen (the subject of a pretty good 2013 documentary, “Jodorowsky’s Dune”), he made a few more features but faded from the cinema scene.Jodorowsky clearly enjoyed making this portrait of the artist as a young poet.To play himself as a young adult, the filmmaker has cast none other than his son Adan; portraying the director’s proto-fascist father is his other son, Brontis.[...] notable among the performers is Pamela Flores, who plays both his mother (who, alone among the cast, sings her dialogue) and a radical feminist poet.There are moments that feel liberating and exhilarating — the filmmaker deeply believes in artists as rebels, and has retained at least part of his ability to keep the audience off balance.Black-clad figures move around props and two-dimensional images in what at one time would have seemed a daring way to abolish the fourth wall.
