Hey Yo, Draven here.

We have got one awesome opportunity for you guys to win some cool stuff in celebration of Alejandro Jodorowsky's comeback film, THE DANCE OF REALITY. Capone posted a very positive review of it just last week and now we have even more reason to celebrate with this awesome prize pack. It includes Blu-rays for both EL TOPO and HOLY MOUNTAIN, plus the EL TOPO soundtrack on Vinyl and CD. How cool is that?

So how do you win? Well, just send an e-mail to with your favorite Jodorowsky film and why, or send me your review of THE DANCE OF REALITY. Keep it under 500 words and send it to me before Tuesday, June 10th. I will then select a winner based on the e-mails I receive and contact them.

Pretty simple right? In the meantime here is the synopsis, release schedule, and trailer for THE DANCE OF REALITY:

After a 23-year hiatus, The Dance of Reality marks the triumphant return of Alejandro Jodorowsky, the visionary Chilean filmmaker behind cult classics El Topo and The Holy Mountain. In the radiantly visceral autobiographical film, a young Jodorowsky is confronted by a collection of compelling characters that contributed to his burgeoning surreal consciousness. The legendary filmmaker was born in 1929 in Tocopilla, a coastal town on the edge of the Chilean desert, where the film was shot. Blending his personal history with metaphor, mythology, and poetry, The Dance of Reality reflects Jodorowsky’s philosophy that reality is not objective but rather a “dance” created by our own imaginations.
