** In an interview, he claims that the scene in ''Film/ElTopo'' where Mara hits El Topo, and then he rapes her was not acted. He has later claimed [[https://lukegoodsell.wordpress.com/2014/01/23/alejandro-jodorowsky-on-el-topo/ that he did not rape her, but instead had consensual intercourse.]] Jodorowsky is a very, very odd man.

During his film career (mainly in the '70s and '80s) he deliberately set out to create films which would have the same impact on a viewer as a dose of psychedelic drugs. Not content with tripping his audience out, he would often set up the film making process as a ritual magical act for himself as well. For example, he used his own real son as his on-screen son in ''ElTopo'', and really put the boy through the manhood ritual depicted in the film. He has also used psychedelic drugs during filming, and occasionally dosed actors before shooting.

Jodorowsky was originally slated to be the director for the film adaptation of ''Film/{{Dune}}''. His version would have been 14 hours long, and borne only a tangential resemblance to the book (it was going to be based on a ''dream he had'' which he later discovered was similar to the plot of the first novel). He had also contracted Creator/SalvadorDali to play Emperor Shaddam Corrino IV (for a fee of $100,000 per minute of screentime) and OrsonWelles (who only agreed to the film on the terms that his favorite chef prepare all his meals) as Baron Harkonnen, with Dark Side of the Moon-era PinkFloyd providing some of the soundtrack. As he had already spent nearly a third of the budget without shooting a thing, the producer decided to replace him. An interview features Jodorowsky and some of his collaborators talking about the plans for the film. A feature length documentary ''Jodorowsky's Dune'' also examines the subject.

Jodorowsky has also worked extensively as a writer for comics. He wrote a number of series set in his SpaceOpera "Jodoverse" as well as others. The Jodoverse contains a lot of ideas he had worked up for his version of ''{{Dune}}''. Jodorowky's comics contain many of the same mystical, surreal and brutal elements as his films.

* PlayingAgainstType:''Tusk'' was a movie for kids about the friendship of a girl and one elephant, without any of the strange symbolisms present in his other movies.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Played with by the aborted Dune adaption. Although it never saw production, the storyboard treatment helped inspire many Hollywood film makers.

* InNameOnly: Jodorosky holds no reverence for the source material when he approaches an adaptation. He's stated that he wants to "rape" the original work when making an adaptation. His version of ''Dune'' was largely based on dreams he'd had. He so resented being prevented from diverting from the original story in ''The Rainbow Thief'' that he disowned the film.

* MindRape: One day, Albino the Technopope was facing 3 of his pupils, who disagreed with his policy and wanted to ventilate him. After he seized them, he wiped their minds clean of the disagreement (with a quasi-immaterial "needle" thingy going though their foreheads and and lotsa pain) and replaced these memories with non-dissenting ones. [[GoodIsNotNice Good ain't nice here indeed]] and [[FromBadToWorse this is one of the more harmless cases of this trope in "The Technopriests"]].
* {{Nepotism}}: Cast his own son in lead roles in ''El Topo'', ''The Dance of Reality'' and his planned ''Dune''
* NoExportForYou: Two of his films ''Tusk'' and ''TheRainbowThief'' hasn´t been released on DVD yet (The prices for the TheTechnopriests translations into German and English are an borderline example, cause they're relatively expensive).
