My book 'Anarchy and Alchemy: The Films of Alejandro
Jodorowsky' (Creation Books) is out in April 2007. Special editions
signed by Jodo (strictly limited to 50 copies) are available now at
www.creationbooks.com Check out my MySpace page (www.myspace.com/
bansheeben) for details on the book, rare El Topo artwork and lots
more...

Tartan Films UK are releasing their Fando y Lis/El Topo/The Holy
Mountain boxset on May 14th and its shaping up to be a stunning
package. The 6-disc set includes Jodo's long-lost short La Cravate,
audio commentaries with the director and soundtracks for both El Topo
and The Holy Mountain. Not to mention the jaw-dropping remastered
films themselves (they have even managed to source an English audio
track for El Topo)... Check below for the full specs. I will be
contributing the liner notes for the films.
