Spaghetti head trip

I left my sofa having experienced the most surreal filmic experience of my life. I thought 'Tommy' was strange until I saw El Topo.

El Topo can be best described as a psychedelic head trip western. It's modeled on the spaghetti westerns of the late sixties, but that does not mean you should expect a Leone clone.

Four thousand buckets of fake blood were used during th... read more

" Spanish. Surreal. Directed by Alejandro Jodorowsky. Not Jodorowsky's first movie, but his first good one. It makes a lot more sense than Holy Mountain. It has an actual plot. The imagery isn't as relentless. Unfortunately, it kind of falls apart a little towards the end. The first half of the movie is a riff on Westerns. It's about a gunfighter named El Topo, who claims to be God, who hunts down and kills a group of bandits. He rescues a woman (and abandons his son), who convinces him to d"

"13.3 DVD Edellisen jälkeen teki mieli katsoa jotain toista komealta näyttävää elokuvaa. Ja sitähän El Topo nimenomaan olikin, siistiä psykedeelisyyttä ja mielipuolista visuaalisuutta. Ei tämä kuitenkaan ihan kokonaisuutena toiminut, sillä erityisesti loppupuolella laahataan ihan liiaksi, mutta Jodorowskyn haahuilut aavikolla etsimässä neljää mestaria oli sen verran hienoa seurattavaa, että plussan puolella mennään. Mitään sen syvällisempiä pointteja en itse löytänyt, ""

"Mix a good old spaghetti western with surrealism and you'll come across with El Topo. Jodorowski is among the masters of surrealist cinema and El Topo may be one of the most twisted and weird films of his, yet easier to follow. "

"Nyt ei ollut paras päivä Jodorowskille, siitä kai sitten näinkin huonot pisteet. Tulevaisuudessa joskus uusiksi, niin ehkäpä se tajunta tämänkin kanssa vielä räjähtää. Kuitenkin painajaismainen ja surrealistinen helvetinmatka läpi (ultramitoissa lasketun) veren, kiirastulen ja epätoivon. Erityisesti vastenmielisten akkojen juonittelun kohteeksi joutunut ja karun kohtalon saanut sympaattinen orja sekä naisen vuoksi munkkien huomaan dumbattu pikkukloppi jäävät elävästi mieleen"
