Film and book titles : In italics or not?[edit]

There should be consistency on this, across all wiki, on esthetic grounds. The Gnome 19:59, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

  • will someone tell me how to pronounce his name*
Aleh-HAN-dro Yoh-doh-ROV-ski" ... discospinster 21:25, 16 March 2006 (UTC)

Thank you Discospinster!!! I've wondered for a long time whether the J in his last name should be pronounced as an "H" because he did a lot of his work in Spanish or as a "Y", because it's not an Hispanic surname. I went to this article for the purpose of finding this out. I've put a note on pronunciaiton in the article. Should we use the International Phonetic Alphabet symbols for this?Smiloid 08:09, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

"Many close to the project claim that the set designs later turned up in Star Wars" Shouldn't this be Alien? Moebius was never involved in designing anything for Star Wars. stasis101 28 Juli 2006

It was Dune actually, later done by D. Lynch.

  • I disagree. I'm from Spain. I listened Jodorowsky pronounce his own surname several times, and the "J" in his last name has a sound similar to the "H" of "house", "horse" or "her". On the other hand I listened the pronunciation "Y" in non Spanish speakers, but it´s not correct.
  • In Jodorowski's native Chile, his last name is pronounced with an initial /x/ (the "ch" in German "Bach". Never with initial /j/ (the "y" in English "you"). Steve Fishboy 05:34, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
  • Just a couple things regarding the IPA:
    • The grapheme "d" in "Alejandro" should probably be represented as /d/ instead of /ð/ -- assimilation to /n/ triggers this allophone. I notice /ð/ was dentalized, but the point here is that the allophone is not fricative, but rather a stop.
    • Interesting that the "w" in his last name was interpreted as /v/. In Spanish this would normally be /β/¹, but in Chile [v] is a very common allophone of /b/. In this particular context, though, it's quite lenis. (¹Sorry, can't find the similar IPA glyph at the bottom of the page... had to resort to Greek). Steve Fishboy 05:36, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
  • what's the big mystery about pronouncing his name? There are plenty of Spanish names spelled with J which sounds like H, Jose and Jesus come to mind first. In fact the English page should have his name spelled as Khodorowsky, if Khrushchev to be any indication. discospinster please restrain yourself from furnishing erroneous information. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.127.161.132 (talk) 08:12, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Birthplace: Tocopilla or Iquique?[edit]

This article currently gives Jodorowsky's birthplace as Tocopilla. However, elsewhere (e.g. IMDb) it's said to be Iquique. Is there an authoritative source for the former? PhiDeck 23:42, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

He was born in Tocopilla, near Iquique, as is his own memories he wrote. Ariel

Producer-to-be of Dune[edit]

The name of Jerome Seydoux is given as the producer-to-be of Dune. However other sources suggest that it was Jerome's brother Michel Seydoux who agreed to sponsor this project. See Dune: Book to Screen timeline [1]

Pronunciation[edit]

Hi. [ɑː.lɛ.ˈxɑːn.drɒ jɒ.dɒ.ˈrɒv.skiː] is the normal English pronunciation of their name or is an approach to Spanish pronunciation? In Spanish should be [ɑː.lɛ.ˈxɑːn.dɾo xo.ðo.ˈɾobs.kiː] and in English must have /ɹ/s. Bye. Lin linao (talk) 07:55, 25 May 2008 (UTC)


I think in Spanish it's [a.le.ˈxan.dɾo xo.ðo.ˈɾobs.ki].

Over-self /super-egp?[edit]

Does the "over-self" mentioned in the article refer to the super-ego, or is it a different concept? 惑乱 分からん * \)/ (\ (< \) (2 /) /)/ * (talk) 13:18, 4 July 2008 (UTC)


VHS factoid: At the time of writing, the Wiki entry says: "Until 2007, Fando y Lis and Santa sangre were the only Jodorowsky's works available on DVD. Neither El Topo nor The Holy Mountain were available on videocassette or DVD in the United States or the United Kingdom, due to ownership disputes with distributor Allen Klein." I own a 114 minute version, which "contains some genital fogging", released on the Visual Film label (PAL VSL 10072). So I made an alteration.

Production of Dune[edit]

This statement: "The music would be composed by Peter Gabriel". Is completely different from this one: "The music would be composed by Magma, Henry Cow and Karlheinz Stockhausen or Pink Floyd". - See Dune Which one is correct ?

adding a 2010 section about his new films and breaking up the 2000-present section[edit]

Should the 2000 decades be broken up into 2000, and a section on 2010+ detailing The Dance of Reality and El Topo sequel which are in production now; basically the 2000s section about his attempts to return to filmmaking and a 2010 section about him actually returning to filmmaking with these 2 films. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wikiepdiax818 (talkcontribs) 05:07, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

Birthday[edit]

I'm changing the date of his birthday, from February 7th to February 17th. I also added some sources. Apparently, it was wrong since the creation of the article. The article needs better sources on this subject. It seems correct on wikipedia in spanish, but the french version notes conflicting sources.--Itzcuauhtli (talk) 19:24, 12 December 2011 (UTC)
