I left my sofa having experienced the most surreal filmic experience of my life. I thought 'Tommy' was strange until I saw El Topo.

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

“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.
