    banksy-esque but obviously more original. ya i was really stoned when i watched this but it's still thought provoking not in a cliché way. It is. abstract, symbolic, surreal, and it's an experience. kinda long but the length is necessary in order to take this film seriously lol. WEIRD

    This film is art in a way that other films have hardly achieved. It is a Salvador Dali painting come to life. It is an oft stated compliment, but in this film, every frame truly is a painting. Each so meticulously composed and conveying so much meaning; that of societal greed, the illusion of reality, and the perversion of sanctity.

    It makes me incredibly proud that this was made by a Chilean artist.

    Few films embody the word "psychedelic" better than The Holy Mountain.
    A meticulously crafted journey, communicating through imagery of the absurd, decadent, sexual and violent.

A film that revels in it's madness, proud to be an aesthetic experience where the images hold the emotional weight, rather than any kind of intellectual exercise.

    This is cinema of the senses.

    The Alchemist: "We began in a fairytale and we came to life, but is this life reality? No. It is a film. We are images, dreams, photographs. We must not stay here. Prisoners! We shall break the illusion. This is magic! Goodbye to the Holy Mountain. Real life awaits us".

    The story is about a Christlike figure wanders through bizarre, grotesque scenarios filled with religious and sacrilegious imagery. He meets a mystical guide who introduces him to seven wealthy and…
