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.

"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. "

" 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. "
