According to Brontis Jodorowsky, the eldest son of avant-garde filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky, cinema is in a state of flux. "I think we are in a moment of mutation where we are still on the industrial thing where people are getting tired of fattening movies. Their heads are getting fat from the McDonald's movies," he says, talking over the phone from his Paris home.
This mutated state means it is the perfect time for his father to return to filmmaking after a career that can be called nothing short of tumultuous. It involved death threats, a deal with John Lennon that turned legally sour, and included the virtual hostage-taking of some of his films, a historically failed adaptation of Frank Herbert's Dune and struggles with "selling out," that made him disown one of his later movies. You cannot blame the elder Jodorowsky for turning his back on filmmaking for 20 years.
