I don't know though if the same can be said of Jodorowsky's Fando y Lis (re cultivating the mind and spirit). I am all for surrealism and I lean towards the works of Max Ernst, Joan Miro and Salvador Dali, but as the latter once said, "There is only one difference between a madman and me. I am not mad" and Jodorowski is a madman (when Fando y Lis was shown in 1968 in Acapulco, a riot was said to have broken out with the director fleeing the theatre for his dear life). The story follows Fando (Sergio Klainer) and his paraplegic girlfriend Lis (Diana Mariscal). It is a modern fable about two young people searching through a destroyed world for a mythic city called Tar where all their wishes will be fulfilled. Instead, they are corrupted and driven mad. I thank the heavens for giving me the patience of a camel to have seen this film through.
There is something terribly wrong about Wanted. I almost died at the sight of James McAvoy's totally bad acting (especially during the car chase). Please, God. Don't turn him into another Colin Farrell. This man has so much promise in him!
