Jodorowsky's THE RAINBOW THIEF hits DVD thru REVOK

Three legendary actors (Peter O'Toole, Omar Sharif, and Christopher Lee) share the spotlight in THE RAINBOW THIEF, this rare weird comedy directed by the one and only Alexandro Jodorowsky.

A shabby thief of the streets finds the proverbial pot at the rainbow's end when he meets a reclusive, nutball prince who stands to inherit millions when is uncle dies. The thief figures he'll share his daily bounty with the impoverished heir now... and the prince will remember him later. But the thief forgets the very important reason for why we have rainbows, which is to chase them!

Although not as strong and violent as the average Jodorowsky film, The Rainbow Thief still shares elements of the rest of his work and makes up in weirdness and imaginative situations. Stating through symbolic imagery more than with the plot and the dialogues, Jodorowsky again gets through to your subconcious and in the end we can all understand his message.

The DVD is available through Vendio store (by clicking the image above), or emailing They also offer El Topo, The Holy Mountain and Santa Sangre.
