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

Wow, vaya viaje es esta película, fácilmente una de las más raras y extremas que haya visto, es bastante extraña la forma en como combina múltiples elementos e ideas, como alegorías religiosas y criticas sociales que lo vuelven un spaghetti western muy atípico. Esto es algo que le parecerá molesto a algunos con su contenido tan brutal, así como el alto nivel de contenido explicito exagera... read more

"The godfather of the 'Midnight Movie' this sprawling epic of Western meets bizarre mystical journey has a bit of something for everyone. Kind of amazing, really. "

" Other noteworthy figures said to be fans of the film, besides John Lennon and Yoko Ono, include directors David Lynch and Samuel Fuller, actors Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper, and performers Bob Dylan, Marilyn Manson, and Peter Gabriel. It has been claimed that this movie was the beginning of Gabriel's inspiration for the classic Genesis concept album, 'The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway'."

" Date: 12/31/2020 Viewed: Blu-Ray Re-Watch Note: El Topo felt like the perfect movie to end 2020 with because it's a total oddball of a movie. When it comes to Alejandro Jodorowsky movies, I still consider The Holy Mountain to be his best movie. El Topo is still a masterpiece and it's totally a surreal movie that you have to experience for yourself. El Topo is a weird west movie and Alejandro Jodorowsky took the "Weird" in the weird west genre quite literally. It's almost impossible to talk a"

El Zumbador posted a review 2 years, 1 month ago

“El Topo es una película altamente surrealista y difícil de digerir. Pienso que son específicamente esas cualidades la que hacen que sea tan rechazada entre el público casual, y no los culpo, ya que este tipo de obras repletas de simbolismos, metáforas y con elementos confusos esparcidos por todo el escenario llegan a ser demasiado pesadas y poco atrayentes debido a lo complicadas que son de entender cuando se las ve por primera vez. Pero lo cierto es que, y al igual que otras obras como Serial Experiments Lain, esta película te invita a reverla y pensarla mejor una vez lo hayas hecho, por lo que no veo problema con el hecho de que sea rara o esté llena de metáforas porque, al fin y al cabo, es el trabajo reflexivo lo que la hace interesante.
