    Jodorowsky is definitely a visionary director but I just did not get this film. I respect the effort and he is clearly aiming extremely high here....but I just did not get it. Tough sit for me.

    Entirely weird. Totally absurd, yet coherent. This film is amazing.

    Jesus-like beggar goes through a series of adventures before an alchemist sends it to conquer the elusive secret of immortality. Jodorowsky's syncretic extravaganza is a powerful and constantly fascinating stream of visual ideas, over-the-top satire and shock value that could fuel entire careers of so-called visionary directors. Way more consistent than "El Topo", with an ultimately endearing balance between artistic ingenuity and naïveté.

    Nothing makes sense, but everything is beautiful, the light is within you, and gold is made from poop.

    Thank you for traveling the Holy Mountain express

    Absolutely insane but packed to the brim with stunning visuals, Alejandro Jodarowsky's Holy Mountain is a surreal, consciously psychedelic melange of setpieces and concepts, loosely tied together by the skeleton of a plot regarding a Christ-like thief who joins forces with achetypical characters to scale the titular mountain where the Immortals reign over the universe.
    Or something like that. I can honestly write that the imagery in Holy Mountain is absurd, irreverent, blasphemous, offensive, self-indulgent, shocking, awe-inspiring, gorgeously composed, weird,…

    This film was so trippy and full of religious symbolism. It just makes me wonder what his version of Dune would've looked like. Now I'm kind of depressed.

    There were some thins about this movie I liked, such as how it showed the Jesus character coming from a primitive thief who grunted And was violent wearing next to nothing than becoming enlightened. how the first thirty minutes of the movie there was very little dialog,

    saying that, I don’t think this is going to be One of the movies I watch very often or again. I guess you could say I didn’t get this movie. I did like…
