The Holy Mountain

The Holy Mountain ★★★★

So, I'm at a crossroads with this thing, right? I feel like there are two options for me to interpret it as.

1) It's a pretty solid film that drags on far too long given the content we receive and the range of fantastic to piss poor symbolism stuffed in throughout the runtime. However, it definitely has a gratifying ending and some of the most beautifully and meticulously crafted visuals ever put on film.

Or

2) This is the most genius troll film ever and the fact that there is such contention over it adds to the brilliance of the last ten minutes.

Either way, I have to admire it, and secretly hope that it's the latter.
