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.

"A black clad man must kill the 4 masters in a desert after he visits a village whose inhabitants have been massacred Truly bizarre yet visually interesting western mixing eastern philosophy and surreality http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Uqb4Jy0GTg"

" Director(s): Alejandro Jodorowsky Cast: Alejandro Jodorowsky Where: TV (Recorded) When: 30th October 2013 Why?: Haven't seen it Seen it before?: No Project: Classics Thoughts: Well, that was different :p. Another one of those bonkers westerns full of imagery and symbolism that makes no sense on the face of it. Would need a few viewings to study all the sequences to get a full understanding methinks. Unfortunately it is a bit brutal for multiple viewings (for my taste anyway). Fantastic"

"14.07. DVD, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Alejandro Jodorowsky Awe-inspiringly ridiculous at best, ugly and boring at worst. The first half - everything that happens in the desert in other words - is far superior even though the second one also has its moments. For example, I laughed out alone during the Russian roulette in the church scene. Looking forward to "

"El Topo is the type of film one shouldn't even try to understand. Director Alejandro Jodorowsky creates a truly unique kind of film, one that merges conventions of western and avant garde cinema. Ultra symbolic (almost irritatingly so), it is a tale of an epic journey toward redemption, the likes of which have not been done before. It is bizarre, surreal, perplexing, and while many scenes are intriguing, just as many can be quite frustrating. Overall, it isn't quite as interesting as some of the"
