Video Naturalismo: Jodorowsky's "La Cravate"

Alejandro Jodorowsky’s first film, La Cravate, was considered lost for 50 years until it was recently found in a German attic and released last May on a digital box set of all of his films. This 35 minute short was shot in 1957 and traces the themes of love and suffering that Jodorowsky would later draw more strongly upon in his masterpieces El Topo and The Holy Mountain. I’m always hesitant to give too much away about what I post, preferring to have the reader experience it fresh but if you need your interest piqued; La Cravate is like Eyes without a face and Frankenstein painted on the screen by James Ensor, a cruel tale of a Parisian headswoman conspiring with a lover who desires it all.
