The Holy Mountain

The Holy Mountain ★★★★½

Film Triplets Project

I'm glad I wasn't actually high while watching this, I think the way everything just sort of happens would have broken me.

Absolutely one of the weirder films out there, I was a little disappointed when it started to gain some semblance of a plot. Frame by frame though, it's constantly engaging. There's always a penis in frame for some reason, trippy colours or patterns, or some off-key situation where the only thought to be had is "Why on earth did this cross anyone's mind to make?"

My greatest surprise was learning Jodorowsky's first LSD trip was because of this movie. It plays out as though from the mind of someone who'd been riddled for years.
