Santa Sangre

Unforgettable imagery is used to tell the story of two circus performers, an armless woman and her insane son who acts as his mother's hands. Jodorowsky's ('El Topo', 'The Holy Mountain') intense visuals assault the viewer leaving one both exhausted and exalted by his nightmarish vision. Highly recommended for adventurous videophiles and fans of the surreal.
