    I adore this movie. There is no way to properly critique it, as I have
    not found a film remotely close to even compare this to. It is art pure and simple. Something akin to Dali or Margitte, maybe that's a bit of an overstatement. This is the kind of surreal I love versus something subtle like David Lynch's Inland Empire.
    I can feast on the surrealism and symbolism over and over again. Every aspect of this film is perfect…

    Batshit insane. I've never seen a close up shot of a man having his anus so tenderly bathed. Read that sentence and shudder like I did.

    The score is electronically innovative (think Clockwork Orange), and the actors are mostly blank-faced. But the cinematography is where it's at.

    The Holy Mountain is an insane trip of spectacular imagery. Jodorowsky fills the screen with a series of surreal visions, from toads dressed as conquistadors being released onto unwitting iguanas before the entire…

    I need to re-watch this film at least a thousand times, because it is just one of those movies.

    On an aesthetic level, this movie is at least an 11/10. This is an extremely colorful film, best enjoyed when on a substance that may or may not be legal in your country of residence. Sooooo much symbolism exists in this film, and every scene was made to LOOK great. Even the scene where he shits in a glass bowl is…

    "The philosophical stone of the alchemist… is LSD!" That sums up the film fairly well. There are now far too many violently surrealist images ingrained in my memory thanks to Jodorowsky.

    I need to see this again. This was not a good movie to smoke pot to, surprisingly.

    This film is the equivalent of a cinematic missing link.

    [...]Ich verneige mich im Geiste vor Alejandro Jodorowsky, für dieses von ihm geschaffene Epos – ein Meisterwerk und eine absolute Frechheit zugleich! Wer diesen Film gesehen hat, und im Abspann darauf geachtet, welche Funktionen von Jodorowsky übernommen wurden, der kann sich vorstellen warum. “Written and directed by..” kennen wir. Aber auch Kostüme? Auch Kulissen? Auch Gemälde und Ausstattung? Auch Musik? Und dann vor allem in einer ausufernden Intensität, wie sie kaum ein zweiter Film teilt? Hier hat ein begeisterter Filmemacher…

    Jodorowsky's surreal masterpiece. I don't really have anything to add to my previous review, except I don't think I mentioned before how funny the film is.

    The first 40 minutes - virtually dialogue-free - are pure cinematic genius, with so many favourite bits (possibly my absolute favourite is the scene where the guy wakes up surrounded by hundreds of effigies of himself, or maybe it's the battle reenactment staged with chameleons and toads). Then the other characters are introduced one…
