    The director of the cult classics El Top and The Holy Mountain, Alejandro Jodorowsky has created a Felliniesque new film Endless Poetry. Dazzlingly shot on location by cinematographer extraordinaire Christopher Doyle (Wong Kar Wai’s In the Mood for Love), this colour-splashed sequel to his previous film Dance of Reality draws a heartfelt if comically absurd portrait of a young man growing into his identity.
