“Industrial Films Are Not Art” – Jodorowsky Interview

Alejandro Jodorwsky’s new movie, The Dance of Reality, opens this weekend, his first new movie in over 20 years. The avante-garde director of The Holy Mountain and self-described “atheist mystic” talks about film in an article on Flavorwire. As always, he has provocative things to say about film and art:

“I say to the young artist, don’t make movies as a profession. Don’t make movies in order to live, in order to want money. Make your pictures when you can, but work is another thing. Don’t work in pictures for money. You will never be a real artist … Hollywood pictures, industrial pictures are the end of movies. They will kill cinema … Industrial pictures are not art.”
