The Holy Mountain

The Holy Mountain ★★★★½

Golly.

I liked this more than El Topo, which flagged a bit towards the end . . . this one always has some insane idea or sequence just around the corner. Put simply, this is my kind of madness, with eye-popping visuals and a complex structure that made me feel things weren't as "random" as they seem. It didn't feel like untethered weirdness to me, even though it was simultaneously one of the 3 weirdest movies I've ever seen. Quite a feat.

Also, just from an art direction and production design standpoint: Good God.
