Alejandro Jodorowsky 4

We only have problems we really want to have.
Alejandro Jodorowsky

To have hands, to have fingers, is weird. Real life is weird, to have fingers?
Alejandro Jodorowsky

I am not a man. I am not a human being inside. I am not that. I don’t know what I am, but I am not that.
Alejandro Jodorowsky

I liked Lady Gaga’s meat dress. It was funny.
Alejandro Jodorowsky

Lady Gaga has a lot of energy, and that is fantastic, but she is using old surrealist images.
Alejandro Jodorowsky

Surrealism – in particular with Salvador Dali – was all about ego. It was all about extreme individualism.
Alejandro Jodorowsky

I have always thought that, of all the arts, the cinema is the most complete art.
Alejandro Jodorowsky

Tarantino’s ‘Django’ amused me very much. It is as made by an adult that was still a child.
Alejandro Jodorowsky

Every work of art belongs to his time. I would not paint again the Mona Lisa in the third dimension.
Alejandro Jodorowsky

When I brought ‘El Topo’ to New York, no one understood the picture. But John Lennon understood. John and Yoko Ono, they presented ‘El Topo’ in the United States; they introduced it.
Alejandro Jodorowsky

I am like a woman. I have a woman inside me.
Alejandro Jodorowsky

A true artist is always out of his time.
Alejandro Jodorowsky

My father was an atheist, absent. He was a salesman; I was four years old when he told me that the end of life was death.
Alejandro Jodorowsky

Society feeds terror and is in turn terrorized; we are afraid to lose, so we consume.
Alejandro Jodorowsky

Revolutions are of no us;, it is necessary to work on transforming the brain: on sowing a different knowledge/awareness, on creating a new conscience, that is like a magic box full of brains.
Alejandro Jodorowsky

Let the inner god that is in each one of us speak. The temple is your body, and the priest is your heart: it is from here that every awareness must begin.
Alejandro Jodorowsky

When I’m not creating something, I get bored; I despair.
Alejandro Jodorowsky

I’ve seen ‘Hamlet’ many times, and Hamlet, he was just a hideous neurotic; he never changes. He doubts – all the way to the end, all the way until when he dies, he doubts.
Alejandro Jodorowsky

Maybe I am a prophet. I really hope one day there will come Confucius, Muhammad, Buddha and Christ to see me. And we will sit at a table, taking tea and eating some brownies.
Alejandro Jodorowsky

Accepting death is a massive problem for everybody.
Alejandro Jodorowsky
