The Holy Mountain

The Holy Mountain ★½

3.5/10

I’m gonna give Jodorowsky a big *BONK* and send him straight to horny jail.

All of the stars of my score goes behind the the incredible set design, costume & makeup, and very intriguing cinematography. If I were rating this just as experimental filmmaking, it would get a 9/10.

But I just feel like all of these amazing elements could have been bolstered so well if integrated into a cohesive plot and story.

This film is essentially 100% symbolism. And I’m not a fan of symbolism without story. But hey, it’s super admirable and I think it’s awesome Jodorowsky got this produced in the first place.
