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 FORMATS.

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 SCREEN.

 

SUMMARY - 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.
