The Holy Mountain

The Holy Mountain ★★★★½

A cinematic experience for the ages

Alejandro Jodorowsky is simply a master, and an artist. This film represents so much and has so many things to say about philosophy and life, while being the full vision of Jodorowsky and not compromising anything, even actual shite. This was 1973 and reflects a lot of itself on arthouse cinema today - I mean this is one of the original midnight movies. I’m no philosopher or intellectual, but I’d argue that this film is really a post-modernist masterpiece, it doesn’t care about telling the story in a conventional way, and certainly doesn’t fall within the boundaries of traditional cinema, lots of great character perspective, and the ending really just speaks for itself
