Karl Janssen’s review published on Letterboxd:
This was my first experience with a Jodorowsky film (other than the documentary Jodorowsky's Dune), so I didn't know what to expect, but if I had expectations they would have been exceeded. I was riveted to the screen from start to finish. It had me sometimes disgusted, often amused, but always in awe of the visual feast. Admittedly there's not much of a story here: a Jesus-looking guy in a g-string goes on a spiritual quest, during which he is beset by all manner of charlatans and hypocrites. It's less of a narrative motion picture than a surrealist motion painting. I don't pretend to understand every metaphor or the basis for each bit of satire, but I thoroughly enjoyed it nonetheless. It's refreshing to watch the work of a director who, without reservations, can take any idea from his imagination, no matter how bizarre, and find a way to put it on screen and make it look beautiful. When Dali and Buñuel were making An Andalusian Dog, I imagine them dreaming that someday, technology permitting, they would be making movies like this.
One caveat: You're not going to find a Humane Society disclaimer at the end of this film. Almost every animal in the zoo shows up here, and they're not all treated in accordance with today's ethical standards.
