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.

Because I Was Curious, Dammit! Part 6 (8 movies items)

"After I saw The Holy Mountain, I was curious about El Topo and Santa Sangre. El Topo has been described as an "acid Western". Those two words perfectly describe this film, although it is not as trippy as the Holy Mountain. The thing with Alejandro Jodorowsky's films is that we expect to be shocked and that makes them less shocking. "

" Vista: 22/04/2017 Vista por primera vez. Opinión: Una película extremadamente simbólica y única, la historia llega a tener muchos aspectos surreales y que se pueden interpretar de múltiples maneras (la mas popular, el ciclo de vida, muerte y renacimiento del hombre, aunque yo también pude leer algunas criticas a lo que puede llegar a hacer un hombre por la tentación sexual de una mujer, mas que nada en la primera parte de la película), con un excelente desarrollo del personaje principal"
