The Holy Mountain

(1973) dir Alejandro Jodorowsky w/Alejandro Jodorowsky, Horacio Salinas [114 min; DCP]
Jodorowsky’s flood of sacrilegious imagery and existential symbolism in THE HOLY MOUNTAIN is a spiritual quest for enlightenment pitting illusion against truth.

“Not even Buñuel with a brainful of Woodstock’s bad brown acid could have made something this gloriously screwy.” – David Fear, Time Out

“A dazzling, rambling, often incoherent satire on consumerism, militarism and exploitation.” – Matt Zoller Seitz, New York Times

“This is an extraordinary visual concoction, loaded with stunning primary colors, anti-religious caricatures drawn from Diego Rivera and a succession of dreamlike, grotesque vistas worthy of Dalí at his most deranged.” – Andrew O’Hehir,

“Halfway through we’re introduced to nine industrialists and politicians — they narrate their heinous biographies in Godardian voiceover — who embark up the title mountain to become immortal. Dude.” – Ty Burr, Boston Globe
