Alejandro Jodorowsky remains one of cinema's most controversial and influential film-makers. In 1968 his scandalous debut Fando & Lis caused a riot in Mexico, forcing the Chilean-born director into exile in France. The following year his ultra-violent underground smash hit El Topo dragged the hippy generation into the 70s, single-handedly invented the American Midnight Movie phenomenon and transformed its creator into a counter-culture icon championed by the likes of John Lennon and Marilyn Manson.
