The Holy Mountain

The Holy Mountain ★★★★

Holy shit! This is amazing; full of mysticism and symbolism and absurdist humour. I laughed (the toad and chameleon circus!), I cried (the toads and chameleons getting blown to bits!), I threw up. A very satisfying experience. I dug it.

Has anybody asked Alejandro Jodorowsky where he gets his crazy ideas!?

Fun trivia about The Holy Mountain from the Blu-ray: George Harrison was interested in playing the Christ-like thief figure (he and John Lennon were fans of El Topo) but he said he wouldn't be filmed having his anus washed. Obviously, this was a deal-breaker for Jodorowsky and that was that...
