The Holy Mountain
Drama • R • 1973 • 1 hr 54 min
Watch the film, or eat yellow cake all your life, it’s a matter of choice.
Very inventive and haunting visuals. Pretty nonsensical story but it invites the viewer to explore further
Jodorowsky has a strange mind. Interesting to watch, unbelievable.
Massively masturabtory film by jodorowsky, but visually very stunning. Even better if you shut the audio off and put some Black Sabbath on.
Just watch it and do not try to understand it. Drink from it.
Earns profound moments by being funny, baffling, very strange, never boring. Less prententious than El Topo.
Too much to unpack, All I will say is it was alternative, unpredictable, and thought provoking If you go in with an open mind it is amazing
It’s an experience. Watch it.You can stream it for free on internet archive
A experience unlike any other. This film plays with what story telling can really be.
I liked some of the metaphores and critiques the movie offers, but I didn't get some others. Overall, I think its pretty good

Shot in France, England, Switzerland and the United States, this documentary covers director Alejandro Jodorowsky (El Topo, Holy Mountain, Santa Sangre) and his 1974 Quixotic attempt to adapt the seminal sci-fi novel Dune into a feature film. After spending 2 years and millions of dollars, the massive undertaking eventually fell apart, but the artists Jodorowsky assembled for the legendary project continued to work together. This group of artists, or his “warriors” as Jodorowsky named them, went on to define modern sci-fi cinema with such films as Alien, Blade Runner, Star Wars and Total Recall.
