Synopsis

Director Alejandro Jodorowsky stars as The Alchemist—apt self-casting for a psychedelic classic about Jesus searching for enlightenment and encountering destruction on the way…

Our take

Financed by John and Yoko (!), The Holy Mountain is the infamous, surreal masterpiece of one of cinema’s great howling prophets: Alejandro Jodorowsky. Zany, subversive, and not for the faint of heart, it’s a lucid dream that lodges itself directly in the subconscious—and there it stays.
