The Holy Mountain

The Holy Mountain ★★★★★

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a movie that shows this much contempt for humanity’s institutions while also having this much fun. The Holy Mountain is like a surreal cinematic adaptation of a Bill Hicks routine until it becomes a postmodern church service.

My jaw dropped to the floor when someone said, “To save the country’s economy, we must eliminate 4 million citizens in the next 5 years,” because I’m pretty sure I saw a congressman say that same thing on Fox News the other day. It takes a technical genius to make a movie that looks like The Holy Mountain, but it takes a regular genius to make a movie this relevant, too.
