    For the first fifteen minutes or so, I was thinking that this was the best dream that I've never had. Then after the initial awe of Jodoroswky's dreamlike imagery wore off, I found the barrage of shock tactics and surreal symbolism to be quite wearisome and uninteresting. Part of me admires the bravery and ambition of such a project where a director's dreams and visions are presented in unadulterated form, but I did not find the experience as a whole to be rewarding.

    It's about as far away from Hollywood as you can get, and it's definitely not for everyone, but I adore this film's beauty and imagination.

    I'll say the ending is probably the most valuable element of The Holy Mountain. Breaking walls for the characters and the audience watching. It is intriguing, being introduced to the main roles in the film, being from and or represented by different planets.
    I enjoyed the abstract ideas and images. They are memorable, along with certain lines, such as this:
    "You are excrement. You can change yourself into gold."
    Remember that.
    I may or may not regret the opportunity I had to view this at a theater. but what can you do.

    Despite the layers upon layers of allegory in the movie, I think it boils down to mankind's search for meaning and the desire to mean something; when that isn't what makes life important. It also was a direct criticism of Latin America in the 1970s, which is very obvious to anybody who actually watches the movie. It also was very beautiful (in a kind of masochistic way) to look at, and Jodorowsky is clearly and ambitious and singular minded filmmaker.…

    Jodorowski has a serious problem with pacing. Like in El Topo, the film significantly slows down and stylistically loses impact for a section there. Fortunately for Holy Mountain, this section is shorter than in El Topo. The other difference between this and Jodorowski's previous film is that, rather than randomly throwing a lot of symbolism around that doesn't really come together in a message or is coherent, Holy Mountain is clear on its intentions and almost straightforward, even.

    Also, is there a reason why the original title is in Spanish, even though in the film itself the name appears in English?
