The Holy Mountain

The Holy Mountain ★★★★½

A masterpiece of surrealist cinema, and one of the more fun arthouse movies to watch basically ever. I was introduced to Jodorowsky with Jodorowsky's Dune (great documentary by the way) and The Holy Mountain seemed like a good place to start. Plot is secondary at best to the hypnotic visuals and little vignettes that crop up as the Jesus figure moves closer to the Holy Mountain itself. This is also a profoundly funny movie and eminently watchable, despite the heady themes of religion and the disjointed arthouse structure. If you're looking for a good way to get into surrealist films, this is a great place to start.
