The Holy Mountain

Director - Alejandro Jodorowsky

Genre - Adventure/Fantasy/Sci-Fi

Undecipherable film which will infuriate those not accustomed to Jodorowsky's special brand of cinema. The director had said himself that his style is highly instinctual, often without a script. This then feels like an oil painter putting layers and layers of paint onto his canvas. Sometimes those strokes he uses with his brush produces brilliance. Other times, it creates a mess. We're not really advocates of this style of making pictures but we wouldn't exactly call this a terrible watch. It just didn't sit well with us.

2.5 STARS!
