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.

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

“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.

"Alejandro Jodorowsky’s El Topo opens with a passage that could be an existential journey for one’s soul or a spoof of a spaghetti western: The bearded, leather-clad gunfighter El Topo (Jodorowsky) and his young son (Brontis Jodorowsky) ride through the desert and into a hamlet of bloodily decimated people and animals. From then on, it’s a winding, spiraling road of evil bandits, mystical foes, and whip-cracking dykes, spiked with indelible, inexplicable imagery. The hairy outlaws fondle an"
