What is the goal of the life?
It's to create yourself a soul.
For me, movies are an art...
more than an industry.
And it's the search of the human soul...
as painting, as literature, as poetry.
Movies are that for me.
I wanted to make a film...
that would give the people who took LSD at that time...
the hallucinations that you get with that drug, but without hallucinating.
I did not want LSD to be taken, I wanted to fabricate the drug's effects.
This film was going to change the public's perceptions.
My ambition with Dune was tremendous.
So, what I wanted was to create a prophet.
I want to create a prophet...
to change the young minds of all the world.
For me, Dune will be the coming of a god.
Artistical, cinematographical god.
For me, it was not to make a picture.
It was something deeper.
I wanted to make something sacred...
free, with new perspective.
Open the mind!
Because I feel, in that time, myself, inside a prison.
My ego, my intellect, I want to open!
And I start the fight to make Dune.
You needed a touch of madness to do it.
You can't have a masterpiece without madness.
Pink Floyd? Dali...
or Orson Welles or others!
Maybe Dune had too much madness?
But a movie that doesn't have a bit of madness...
is not going to conquer the whole world.
I was in Paris with my wife at Jodorowsky's house...
and having dinner...
and very late into the evening...
he goes if I wanted to see Dune.
And I was like:
"I didn't know you made it."
And he goes, well, he did.
And he pulls out, you know, the famous Dune book...
that apparently only exists... Two copies left in the universe.
And I then sat with him in front of me...
for a very long time and just went through the book...
and he would explain his thoughts and his ideas.
And, you know, when I heard about the team...
that he had assembled to make this movie...
sitting there at night, 2 a.m. at his house...
seeing the book, looking at the images...
and hearing Jodorowsky telling me...
what was gonna happen in every scene.
So, in a way...
I'm the only guy who actually ever saw Jodorowsky's Dune.
I am the only spectator...
that has seen the movie.
And I'm gonna tell you something.
Dune is probably the greatest movie never made.
It continues to influence us...
and will go on influencing generations to come...
虽然它不存在 我们不能租来看 也看不到
Despite the fact that it doesn't exist, we cannot rent it, we cannot watch it.
What if the first film of that nature...
had been Dune and not Star Wars?
Would the whole...
mega-bucks blockbuster structure...
have been altered?
I think there's this cliche phrase about movies being ahead of their time.
I think Jodorowsky's Dune might've been the most ahead-of-its-time movie ever.
I don't think that in the history of cinema...
there was ever a film that was taken that far, only to end up not being made.
To become a different film, since a film was made...
that had nothing to do with those two and a half years of work.
If Alejandro's Dune could've been made...
it would've been bigger than 2001.
It was built up...
to be the greatest achievement in science fiction...
and it just evaporated...
into a billion small, black pieces of space.
In the beginning, I was making theater.
In Mexico, I make 100 theater plays.
In 10 years, I make the avant garde theater.
尤奈斯库 贝克特 斯特林保
lonesco, Beckett, Strindberg.
Modern adaptations of Shakespeare, I do.
One day I will make a picture.
From the beginning of his film career...
what he was doing was driving people crazy.
His first film, Fando y Lis...
it premiered in Acapulco at a film festival...
and there was an actual full-scale riot. People went crazy.
It was so nuts that Mexico banned the film.
When I came to pictures...
I came like a virgin.
Without to know technical movement.
I didn't know lens, the number. I didn't know.
We shoot FandoY Us, hiding of unions.
In Mexico, a young director cannot make picture...
without the permission of the old director unions.
I say, "What I need to take the permission to make art?"
Artists need to be free! I do my picture!
Then was a great scandal later, eh?
Because I broke all the unions, I did it!
I was opening the mind of the industry.
Be prepared to live the most wonderful experience of your life.
El Topo is miraculous...
El Topo is more than spectacle.
It is an experience for all of your life.
神奇 《鼹鼠》真乃天下第一 让人难以作出公正的评价
非凡 杰出 难忘 疯癫 神秘 必看
里程碑 《鼹鼠》是电影艺术的里程碑 每看一次就会有新的惊喜 百看不厌
El Topo really was the original midnight movie, the original cult film...
the first movie that played exclusively at midnight screenings...
and drew a loyal cult audience.
What I find extraordinary about El Topo...
is it's his first major movie, and Jodorowsky's producing...
writing and directing and playing the lead...
他还给自己写了一句 经久不衰的台词 "我就是上帝"
and he gives himself that immortal line, "I am God."
I was exposed to it in the underground cinema in New York.
And after that, we had the courage to attempt to distribute it in France...
