HOLY MOUNTAIN (1973) Alejandro Jodorowsky
HOLY MOUNTAIN (1973) Alejandro Jodorowsky

director: Alejandro Jodorowsky
Alejandro Jodorowsky Horacio Salinas Ramona Sanders

Jodorowsky's previous film, EL TOPO, is still one of the greatest movies of all time, but amazingly he manages to top himself with HOLY MOUNTAIN. This movie contains some of the strangest and most wonderful scenes in the history of cinema. It's filled - crammed packed - with bizarre images drawing upon religious and occult philosophies, from Buddhism to Christianity, which seem inspired by a mad marriage of Bunuel, Fellini and William Burroughs. A wandering Christlike character meets a mystical guide who introduces him to six powerful people, each representing a planet in the solar system. These six, along with the christ, the guide and the guide's assistant, divest themselves of their worldly possessions and become the "Nine" who will seek out the Holy Mountain. After conquering the mountain, they plan to become immortal by dethroning the gods who live there.
