HOLY MOUNTAIN, THE

Alejandro Jodorowsky's intense meditation on planetary relations, black ritual, and general grotesqueries.  THE HOLY MOUNTAIN follows a Christlike protagonist as he joins a footless, handless dwarf to perform in a village for tourist dollars.  The man then leaves town, gets himself involved with an Alchemist who can turn excrement into gold, and finally launches into a series of astrological visions that result in a mind-numbing tornado of satirical surrealism. This movie is the only sure path to enlightenment. (Tommy Swenson)
