    Task #3: A Surreal Film.
    _______________________________________________

    'The Holy Mountain' is best enjoyed if you aren't looking for a conventional plot and if you aren't expecting to get easy answers to all the questions the film will raise as you watch it (the most common one being: "what the f--k?").

    Rather, I think you'll get the most out of this film if you see it as a series of moments. 'The…

    Not a movie as much as an absolutely insane and hilarious collage of images, and the ultimate case for the unimportance of plot in film. There's virtually no plot here, just imagery, and yet The Holy Mountain is almost constantly engaging for its two-hour runtime. Watching it is like delving facefirst into someone else's acid trip, surfacing only to take supplementary hits of nitrogen.

    In the first five minutes of this movie, we see the body of a man with…

    The Holy Mountain is a trip. A trip that I never want to experience again. What starts off as an entertaining watch of symmetry, quickly becomes sheer insanity. I love it when a film can pull off insanity and provide the audience with good time. Sadly, I did not find this here. While I appreciate the work Jodorowsky has crafted, it is in no way, shape, or form for me. What I really did not like about the film was…

    Στο δικό μου κινηματογραφικό λεξικό, οι λεγόμενες "παράξενες ταινίες" χωρίζονται σε δύο μεγάλες κατηγορίες: τις ελκυστικά παράξενες και τις απωθητικά παράξενες. Ε λοιπόν, το "Holy Mountain" για μένα υπάγεται στη δεύτερη κατηγορία. Ή πολύ πιο απλά, υπερβολικά "γεια σου" για τα γούστα μου.

    Though they may exist, a stranger film than this I have yet to witness. A cult classic that truly feels as if it was birthed directly from the womb of a cult.

    Everything in this film is entirely bizarre, yet it remains strangely compelling. Jodorowsky could have presented two hours of complete nonsense and it would have made the same amount of sense. Enter to watch two women have their makeup removed and heads shaved. Cut to a man covered…

    La montaña sagrada.

    Auténtica rallada pero muy divertida y entretenida. Gran idea del Sr Jodorowski la de juntar a superheroes que representan a los distintos planetas a cual más estrambótico. Para evitar que los dioses puedan controlar el universo.

    Surrealista visión de Jodorowski y que hace un repaso ya de paso a diversas mitologías. Imprescindible

    You are excrement. You can change yourself into gold.

    Well, I've done it. I've finally found a film to top my Acid Trips list. Alejandro Jodorowsky's The Holy Mountain is a vibrant, satirical, downright offensive film that uses sexually explicitly charged euphemisms and exorbitant amounts of gratuitous explicit nudity as a backdrop to a Jesus story mirror. Its main character is associated to that of Jesus, he is sent to "the Holy Mountain" to discover the secret to immortality, along…

    Film #9 of the "Scavenger Hunt" Challenge!

    I don't think I was ready for that...
    I had been warned about absolutely every single aspect of The Holy Mountain, not only that it would be ''probably the weirdest film I've watched my entire life'' but also that I wouldn't be able to stop watching it, just for the sake of finding out whatever they'd come up with next.
    I enjoyed it for the most part! Although I doubt the verb enjoy…
