The Holy Mountain

After "El Topo" and with the production assistance of John Lennon and ABKCO Films and the desire to become "the Cecil B. De Mille of the underground", writer, director, star Alejandro Jodorowsky sets out on this even more bizarre journey in the shape of his amalgam of Zen, Sufi and Yogi. Cinematically dazzling, though some scenes may offend some sensibilities as we follow one man's quest for enlightenment.
