The Master Speaks

Alejandro“Most directors make films with their eyes;

I make films with my testicles.”

--Alejandro Jodorowsky, Writer/Director

I guess that means his films have balls.

Heh. Yeah, something like that. English isn't his first (or second) language though, so often there's deeper meaning to EVERYTHING he says and does.

Well I guess it begs the question. Does he have any left? :p

so, what he's saying is that all filmmakers make their films using orb-like parts of the body that really shouldn't be moved from the places they belong, much less handling celluloid! Is that good for the film? Wait, is that what he meant by "special effects?" ;)

@Synergy Boy,

You're putting, uh, words in his mouth! You know, when I took that creativity/tarot seminar with him, he mentioned that his art is made from a male perspective, and that no matter what he creates, it will be masculine becuase it is of him, or something like that. I think he was saying the same thing here, using fewer words.

About Me

My photo
This is me and one of my two cats. His name is Cougar, and he’s an F1 Chausie. A chausie is a new breed of cat under development. Chausies are the result of a cross between a domestic cat (in Cougar’s case, a Bengal) and a jungle cat (Felis Chaus). Cougar’s mom is 8 pounds and his father is a 30-pound jungle cat. He’s about 16 pounds, super intelligent, spirited, and toilet trained. A writer without a cat (or two) is not to be trusted.
