    An absolutely bonkers film. The imagery in this film is superb.

    The non-linear (non-sensical?) plot didn't bother me in the slightest due to sheer enjoyment.

    Knocked off half a star because the frog explosion was sad.

    Jodorowsky is a master of colour, 'The Holy Mountain' is psychedelic cinema. The music is sublime, really creates a haunting atmosphere especially the low bass frequencies which are hypnotizing alongside the kaleidoscopic visuals. However the final segment began to feel a bit stilted. The trip up the mountain, whilst interesting conceptually, let down the relatively clean pace of the rest of the film. However fascinating the concepts Jodorowsky chose to explore with this film, and some of them were exquisite…

    Elaborate mystical nonsense, this exquisitely designed movie by the writer-director of El topo is more meticulously complex and straightforward cryptic. It ends up being even more grotesque and iconoclastic, too. On the other hand, it seems Jodorowsky also tortured and murdered many more innocent animals for his god-awful "art" flick, some of them in front of the cameras. And in the most shocking of ways.

    Totally inexcusable, since we are definitely not talking about that poor water buffalo killed onscreen…

    Yaaay I finally got to see this movie in the theater! I have loved this movie for a long time and have seen it a lot but never had seen it in a theater before. For some reason I didn't really like it very much while watching it this time (I was very surprised by this!). My feelings (I have very few thoughts and very many feelings about holy mountain) about this movie have changed with each viewing since I…

    Language fails to provide me with the words necessary to describe this, and indeed all of Jodorowsky.

    One big acid trip with some ironically heartfelt messages. Loved it.

    A messy, painterly, thematically delightful film about knowledge, wisdom, and understanding. A deservedly classic "cult classic" for arty weirdos. The last two minutes are what "made it" for me. I enjoyed the half hour sort-of movie-within-a-movie about the Thief's companions. Though rated only three stars, it's a new favorite (we all know how that is!)
