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

Taste of Cinema - 30 Greatest Westerns (30 movies items)

"One of the original midnight cult movies, endorsed by John Lennon among others, Jodorowsky’s incredible film is packed full of extraordinary and surreal images. It begins as an (almost) straightforward western, with a black clad gunslinger saving some people from a vicious and perverse gang, but then morphs into an examination of the meaning of life, religion, and seemingly a million other things. No amount of words can adequately describe El Topo because the experience of it is not in words, "

"09/04/15 Directed by: Alejandro Jodorowski Part 1 is pretty damn amazing but part 2, though continuing part one in a way that makes enough sense, is so tonally different and considerably less interesting. It's appropriate given the themes for this to happen but it does leave the second half somewhat underwhelming. "

I Recommend...(The Short List) (80 movies items)

" 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"
