I cannot BELIEVE that I did not know about Alejandro Jodorowsky – the Aquarian (Feb 6 1929) & Chilean playwright, psychomagician, puppeteer, film-maker, psychotherapist, Zen Buddhist, writer et AL.
Is it just me? Why is he not celebrated and talked about constantly? Seriously, please read his Wiki and try to tell me he is not THE MOST AQUARIAN MAN IN THE WORLD.
Some highlights: His first film incited a riot, he did a comic book about the Borgias, refused to direct The Story Of O due to his feminist principles, was the first person to scientifically test isolation tanks, resurrected the Marseilles Tarot from obscurity, his next film stars Marilyn Manson as a 300 year old Pope, he learned Mime from Marcel Marceau, initiated the Panic Movement of theatre, his film The Holy Mountain (about Jesus Christ as an Alchemist in dialogue with all the old Roman Gods/Goddesses was funded by John Lennon and Yoko Ono, his book on psychotherapy is called Psychomagic: The Sacred Trap, one of his major love affairs was with a famous & frequently jailed Mexican Soap star known as La Tigressa , another great love was with a magic mushroom shamanic priestess called Maria Sabina…he is fascinating.
