    One of the greatest imagistic films -- also a classic of anti-fascist fiction

    Like no other moving picture work. Big respect. Deserves repeat viewings.

    A masterpiece honestly. My breath was taken away and I was left kind of speechless by the ending. Everything about this feels so fresh and new and exciting, even by today's standards. You can tell this is pure, unadulterated Jodorowsky and his vision is wonderful. Even when his vision is a bit over the top the movie isn't afraid to self-deprecate, which I thought was very interesting. I can't even begin to unpack all of the symbolism and religious allusions, but it all comes together to make a fascinating and enthralling tapestry of a journey to find religious enlightenment.

    A truly bizarre yet extravagantly rich film from Alejandro Jodorowsky that explores a fool taking on a spiritual journey with a mysterious alchemist and a group of people towards a mystical mountain.

    A movie produced, written (yes, it had a script) and filmed while on drugs. It's pretty great, the ultimate 70's trip movie.

    Somebody try to do something like this now, hah.

    Visual art, bursting with color, motif and passion. Hard to even review it as a film, it's more a lucid trip into the creators mind as he tries to enlighten us to his adamant theology and start a revolution. Although more memorable than most films and most definitely more artistic, 'The Holy Mountain' sometimes becomes too steep and far fetched to summit for its own good.

    An obvious classic nonetheless

    Creating The Holy Mountain: $750,000
    A semester at an overpriced film school: $20,000
    The Holy Mountain Blu Ray: $20
    Seeing the reaction on the faces of the other students when they watch The Holy Mountain for the first time: Priceless

    There are some things money can buy, for everything else, there is Jordowsky.

    Alejandro Jodorowsky, ese hombre que a los amantes del cómic y de los tebeos en general nos horripila demasiado por ese ímpetu irrefrenable de abarcar cuanta mas temática y contenido mejor, y que a los gafapastas contraculturales del hoy les vuelve locos su vertiente de brujo chamanico, psicólogo traspersonal y psicomago recalcitrante, parece ser la clase de persona que vino a este mundo a tocar cuantas teclas de piano posible. No lo definiría como un polímata, aunque es…

    Sunday was movie day. After seeing Jodorowsky's Dune last week, I was really interested in watching his work.

    I'm a narrative guy. A good story with interesting characters and good actors is my favorite and how I approach work. But I do appreciate good experimental, surrealist, pure-cinema.

    I lack the mental capacity to finish this film by myself. There is so much happening. How do you even talk about this shit? A cinema of emotions where the story simply IS…

    Jodorowsky's most self-indulgent work, and likely his worst. It almost falls into the so-bad-it's-good category. Someone once compared Jodorowsky to Tommy Wiseau and Edward D. Wood, Jr., and I think the comparison is apt. He has grand ambitions and ideas, but ends up looking like a clown due to a severe lack of talent. He ends up being the all-too-common paradox of the cliched avant-gardist. His approach to defying convention is conventional, his poetry cheesy. He reeks of new age…
