Fando & Lis

Directed by Alejandro Jodorowski, 93 mins

A mind-fuck of a film that should be seen to be believed and I say that in the most positive way possible. Fando and his handicapped sister Lis go around in this barren wasteland filled with weird blood-drinkers and crazy transvestites. One-part Fellini, one-part theatre of the absurd, it’s an interesting introduction to the cinema of Alejandro Jodorowski, who would later create the surrealistic masterpieces like El Topo and Holy Mountain. The movie has a very theatre-esque aspect to it, like you’re watching a surrealist play that has been expanded into a film. It’s surprising this movie ever got made to begin with, since it is very weird, and the actors are put through some of the weirdest situations imaginable. Not Jodo’s masterpiece, but definitely worth the watch.

4 blood-drinking freaks out of 5.
