The Holy Mountain

The Holy Mountain ★½

A chimp that thinks it's a genius throwing shit at a wall and hoping it sticks. Most of it doesn't. Whenever the cinematography or art direction aren't there to save the scene, the film is entirely insufferable. Which is a shame, since Jodorowsky does have a unique and interesting visual style. I just wish he worked with an actual writer to incorporate that style into a good film.

The 1 and a half stars are only for that visual style. Without it, this film would've been an easy half star. Never watching it again and wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Looking at screenshots of the most beautiful scenes would be a better way of experiencing it than actually sitting through it.
