The Holy Mountain

The Holy Mountain

Once in a while, I try to challenge myself and watch something.. unconventional. Something that a lot of people would probably turn off in the first five minutes. I've gotta admit, this thing starts out right away, and it never stops. I feel kind of numb to things right now.

I'm not sure how to rate this, or that a rating would even be necessary because (and I hate to use this cop-out answer) this isn't much of a film as it is an experience. I'd find it impossible to talk to anyone about this unless they've actually sat through it as well. It wasn't an easy watch for me, it was quite disturbing. I did laugh a few times at the absurdity of it all, but man.. it never stops putting on the heat, laying out complex themes and grossing me out. I've never grimaced so much at a film, but I guess what I'm trying to say is I'm glad I watched it, lol. It's something else.
