Hey Folks: I'm taking a bit of a breather.
I'm headed to Chile, the motherland (literally, my mother's land), for a spate of empanada-eating and cabernet sampling. In between, there may be pisco sours and ginormous hot dogs involved.
I'll be back at the keyboards in about a week — with some art and architectural discoveries from the smoggy capital of Santiago.
In the meantime, I leave you with a little Alejandro Jodorowsky, the Chilean filmmaker renowned for bizarre/metaphorical/epic motion pictures such as "El Topo" and "Holy Mountain" — and for being the subject of the wondrously charming documentary, "Jodorowsky's Dune."
His last picture, "The Dance of Reality," released in France in 2013 (see the trailer embedded), is a wild and surreal meditation on the filmmaker's youth in a northern Chilean mining town. And it's available for streaming on Amazon.
Get on it, people. You only live cinematically once.
