Maybe the only Jodorowksy film whose story resembles something akin to normal, Fando y Lis famously caused a riot on the day it premiered in Mexico. Watching it today, even with the general acceptance of sexuality in cinema and media at large, you can still see why this was so provocative and how Jodorowsky's characteristic mode of representation––indulging in the weird and occult in all of their strangenesses––continues to influence avantgarde directors (and Kanye West!) to this day.
