Jordorowsky's groundbreaking classic. On of
the greatest example of surrealism ever put on film. This is what
the amatuers base their work on.
THE HOLY MOUNTAIN
DIRECTED BY: ALEJANDRO
THIS IS A VERY GOOD DVD-R TRANSFER OF THIS RARE
MOVIE. THIS COMPLETE, UN-CENSORED VERSION WAS NOT OFFERED IN NORTH
AMERICA. THIS WILL PLAY IN MOST DVD PLAYERS THAT SUPPORT DVD-R
THE PICTURE QUALITY IS VERY GOOD. THE SOUNDS (MOST
IMPORTANT IN JODOROWKSY FILMS) IS ALSO VERY GOOD. THIS MOVIE IS IN
ENGLISH, MOSTLY DUBBED, WITH SOME SUBTITLED SECTIONS.
THIS IS ONE OF THE FINEST SURREALISTIC MOVIES EVER
MADE. BUT THIS IS A VERY OFFENSIVE FILM, ESPECIALLY IN RELIGION.
THIS ALSO DOES FEATURE MANY BODY FUNCTIONS THAT MAY OFFEND SOME
PEOPLE. UNLIKE MOST VERSIONS FROM HONG KONG, THIS VERSION DOES NOT
HAVE THE OPTICAL BLURRING OVER THE 'NAUGHTY' PARTS. THEREFORE, THIS
MOVIE IS LOADED WITH SEXUAL SITUATIONS, FULL NUDITY (MALE AND
FEMALE) AND BODILY FUNCTIONS NOT NORMALLY SEEN ON THE
Astonishingly beautiful, bloody and strange
surrealist film. Roughly, about a spiritual quest for
enlightenment, truth and immortality; but that doesn't begin to
describe Jodorowsky's Fellini-like flood of imagery and symbolism.
Jodorowsky himself plays "The Master", an occult adept who
assembles a group of people representing the planets of our solar
system (a Christ figure for Earth) to ascend the Holy Mountain and
gain the secret of eternal life. The qualities of the individual
planetary cultures are both based on, and distorted from, their
classic meanings in astrology and alchemy - you really need to have
some basic reading in occultism to follow this movie - and the
stunning ending shot takes the theme of illusion vs. truth to a
completely different plane.
