The Holy Mountain, Jodorowsky's follow-up to the hugely successful El Topo, is a surreal and provocative masterpiece of truly epic proportions. Its rich assortment of unforgettable images forms the basis of a fabulous and unrestrained exploration of humankind. Sex, violence, alchemy, war, religion and the search for self are the landmarks visited on this mind-bending trip.
Beautiful and Bonkers
- The Holy Mountain review by KC
Alejandro Jodorowsky makes films like nobody else makes films, this movie is visually sumptious and totally surreal, the story really doesn't matter just let yourself get caught up in the aesthetic rush and savour the psychedelic vibe of skinned dogs, toad armies and endless animals hanging out in odd places checking out the hippies.
