Fando y Lis








Director - Alejandro Jodorowsky

Genre - Adventure/Fantasy


This being Jodorowsky's debut feature, it is understandable that its attributes would be raw and unfiltered. Adapted from a play of the same name, most of it feels like performance art pieces strung together by the principal story of Fando and Lis's sick love. Disabled and carrying the trauma of being raped at a young age, Lis pins all her hopes and dreams on abusive partner, Fando. Their journey to a mythical realm takes them to the brink of insanity, forcing them to confront their own broken, decomposing souls. Sounds vague and surreal? Well, that's the film in a nutshell. Figuring it out is half the fun. Or not.

3 STARS!
