  1. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film El topo

    A bizarre dream western filled with grotesque images and copious blood.

  2. Diogo Pires's rating of the film El topo

    fun fact: watched it at the 2017 edition of MOTELX with Jodorowsky standing right in front of me in the theater. (35mm)

  3. Teresa Silva's rating of the film El topo

    El topo es un animal que cava galerías bajo la tierra buscando el sol y a veces su camino lo lleva a la superficie: cuando ve el sol, queda ciego

  4. Adam Whybray's rating of the film El topo

    Insufferable. The Gnosticism is contaminated by toxic masculinity. As a fan of Herzog and an occasional admirer of Haneke I have often steeled myself against animal abuse in the name of art, however repellent I find the practice to be. However, not in the name of smug nihilism. Nor the abuse of humans: "I said, 'Now it's my turn. Roll the cameras.' And I really...I really...I really raped her. And she screamed.'"

  7. Louis Robert's rating of the film El topo

    Tout est là pour provoquer et aller chercher les cordes sensibles. La vision de Jodorowsky est complètement insane. J'aurais aimé visionné le film pendant l'époque hippie, j'ai l'impression qu'il fusionnait parfaitement à l'air du temps.

  8. Jérémy Poirier's rating of the film El topo

    A weird animal of a film. I mean weird as hell and really disturbing. Even the opening sequence can't prepare you for what's to come. Seriously, Jodorowsky's take on the western genre is uniquely fascinating and as insane as you'd expect from him. It's kind of a thematic meditation on life, violence, ambition and each one's real purpose in the world. I think. I think... Not sure about those dead rabbits though.

  9. Tyler Wright's rating of the film El topo

    Is it odd that I find this film extremely entertaining?

  10. Bernardo Crastes's rating of the film El topo

    It develops like a dream. I came here looking for a different type of surrealism, but I wasn't displeased. Its beautiful cinematography and bursting symbolism overcome the ludicrous plot, which is slightly off-putting. The second half seems to drag itself a bit, compensating with its crudeness and critique.

  12. FISCHER's rating of the film El topo

    Baroque et quelquefois plutôt confus ! www.cinefiches.com

  13. sabrina's rating of the film El topo

    This is the best Jodorowsky film imo.

  14. Nelson Núñez's rating of the film El topo

    Vi esta película hace como 20 años. Revisitarla fue una experiencia decepcionante. Los primeros 15 o 20 minutos donde conocemos al Topo y lo vemos hacer justicia funcionan como un digno homenaje al estilo de Sergio Leone con su buena dosis de surrealismo. Pero a partir de la búsqueda de los 4 maestros, la película se torna cursi, ingenua y aburrida. El montaje es brusco y torpe en varias ocasiones.

  15. Wee Hunk's rating of the film El topo

    This is hard to judge because it probably had to be seen at the time to appreciate the context. In the current context nothing here works.

  16. dentinhos's rating of the film El topo

  18. mubianer's rating of the film El topo

    Nah. Beautifully filmed, but nonsense.

  19. the prince's rating of the film El topo

    Way over rated - anyway, I prefer experiencing my own LSD and drug experiences

  20. J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film El topo

    Terrible. So incredibly bad. Dialogues, camera, requisite, storyline, directing; incredibly amateurish, so fucking bad. How do people rate this so high? Forget it. Instantly.

  21. Oussssama's rating of the film El topo

    Always wondered if there was a film where a guy justs shoots himself, for the hell of it. Finally found it, thanks Jodorowsky

  22. cyberia's rating of the film El topo

    que alguien me haga el favor de quitarle la camara y desconectarle el modem del internet

  23. Aube James's rating of the film El topo

    Not so much of a story but a theosophical exploration. We follow Jadrorowski's jourmey onto choosing his personal belief. Starting as a lone ranger clothed in black to a martyr who've beatified himself to sainthood. He seems to say the best faith is the most merciful. One that saves "The Moles"--outcasts hiding in caves because the "garden folk" feel threatened by differences. Who's more blind and in the dark?
