The Holy Mountain

The Holy Mountain ★★★★★


Yikes! This is up there with the most disturbing films I’ve ever seen. Lots of nudity, sex/innuendo etc, violence, disturbing images, societal commentary of “what if’s”, cult group, and focuses on a dystopian society. I can’t really recommend this to many people, due to its content.

I watched this as part of a double feature at a cinema along with The Devils.

Good acting.

Great cinematography and blocking overall.

Some weird, jarring editing.

Some camera shaking that was annoying but probably not avoidable.

The story isn’t exactly enjoyable, but it has some quite deep meanings in it.

I wasn’t expecting the ending, but it was quite brilliant in a way and had a great deep message to smack you back to reality.

Rating: 9.5-9.8/10 (was going to give this 4.5 stars, but then the end happened)



Seems to go back and forth between having nine and ten cultists going up the mountain and traveling on their journey.
