The Holy Mountain ★★★★½

Generally speaking, movies tend to be a more subdued art form compared to other, less expensive pursuits. What might only take a few minutes to sketch out with a pencil and paper could cost millions of dollars and countless man-hours to capture on film, but The Holy Mountain is the rare movie that doesn't seem to be bound by any of the usual practical limitations. Almost every scene has the large-scale madness and attention to detail of a particularly psychedelic comic book splash page or the world's most insane model railroad. It tends to drag a little around the middle, but I assume that's usually the case with immortality.
