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

"Alejandro Jodorowsky ei tässä vaiheessa varmaan enää erillisiä esitttelyjä kaipaakaan. Multilahjakas mestaritaiteilija teki kaikin puolin pätevän avauksen elokuvan ihmeellisessä maailmassa pari vuotta aiemmin kotimaassaan kohutulla ja ulkomailla silvottuna sensuroituna versiona esitetyllä Fando and Lisillä. Miehen todellinen läpimurto alalla tuli kuitenkin tällä kyseisellä kulttilänkkärillä, jolla mies pääsi itsensä John Lennonin taloudelliseen suojelukseen. Edellisessä ko"

"increíble viaje de auto descubrimiento, gran desarrollo del protagonista, alegorías cristianas y budistas geniales, crudo y truculento como el carajo con inquietantes criticas a la manipulación de la religión, el hedonismo y la crueldad humana, como no les demandaron por hacer esto?"

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. "
