The Holy Mountain

The Holy Mountain ★★★★★

Yesterday I saw an introduction video on Jodorowsky's filmography and today I watched 'The Holy Mountain' and man, what a incredible masterpieces this is. I love Eisenstein's grotesque and well-edited films, Buñuel inventive and creative surrealist works and this film from the 70s has a taste of Pasolini's 'Salò' or Marco Ferreri's 'La Grande Bouffe'. Jodorowsky's work has so many different intriguing and fascinating pieces: the color palette, the compositions of the stylized shots and the camp, but also theater-like atmosphere. My introduction to this Chilean-French filmmaker and I am stoked to delve into his filmography as soon as possible. One of my favorite films to see this year.
