‘The Dance of Reality’ is sometimes called Jodorowsky’s "comeback film," but in truth, how could such a revolutionary filmmaker really ever have gone away? The recent documentary "Jodorowsky's Dune," about his attempt to create a movie version of the Frank Herbert sci-fi classic, proves the director has an unwavering vision and a dynamic energy that has maintained the director's profile even after 23 years of inactivity.

From the New York Times:
"Mr. Jodorowsky, whose noncinematic pursuits include the development of a therapeutic method called psychomagic, is a shamanistic presence in “The Dance of Reality.” He appears as the protector of his younger self and as a kind of tutelary deity, infusing the story of his own life with a potent and implicitly political lesson. “The Dance of Reality” is the work of a highly disciplined anarchist, whose principal weapon against authority is his own imagination."
