The Holy Mountain

The Holy Mountain ★★½

That's enough nutsacks and merkins and asses for one evening.

Really though, this might upset some but I think it's just a trendy thing to say that this is a great film. Jodorowsky knows where to put a camera and it has a pretty sweet score, but other than that it's just a bunch of surreal imagery, some fascinating but mostly repugnant and "shocking". I'm not a prude in any sense of the word, it just bored me.

It's supposed to be a treatise on capitalism and abstinence of worldly pleasures but I couldn't stop rolling my eyes at rampant close-ups of genitals and bodily fluids. To me it was a less offensive Sweet Movie.
