i am proud to say this movie is in my collection. along with Jodorowsky`s other mind-bending feature `El Topo` the trailer for which can be found on youtube or at the end of this post. the legend is that John Lennon saw El Topo several years after its release and wanted to finance Jodorowsky`s next feature. he fought hard and Holy Mountain was made. And there is supposed to be a sequel, but i`m guessing he won`t be allowed to get away with so much madness, which is unfortunate. link: El Topo Trailer

Nope. I`ll take a nice 3-piece tweed suit and cravat topped with a trilby over my disgusting physique any day. And I want to turn "naked" movies off after watching them for more than 10 minutes. Seeing bush, ass and balls for more than a few times gets old and annoying.

Do you smell that? Smells like......Pabst Blue Ribbon...

I own the movie, it has a lot of subtle idea crammed into some crazy visualizations, and the soundtrack is amazing, but its not for people without patients and a deeper understanding of the world than can be provided by an iphone.

Huh? I wonder if there were actually people who saw that trailer and thought that it would be good to go see? No. The answer is "no".

oh and artsy films are naked because if you`re trying to achieve a naturalistic impression of a human figure theres nothing that impedes that more than clothes. clothes are horrendous compared to the masterpiece that is the human body.

It is frustrating seeing this much artistic illiteracy. Nothing but morons commenting on things they dont understand, which is ironic when you watch and understand what the film is about.

People like you are why theres wars and unrest in the world, haha.

The funny thing is, if it were anime instead, it would probably be extremely well received and touted as art.

I love his films but he uses a lot of the same metaphors for religion and humanity in some of his other films. El Topo, Santa Sangre, etc.

...and that wasn`t even the weirdest parts. Fuego sums it up well, both epic and douchey. A lot of it seems trying to hard to us, after society`s been doing crazy stuff for decades...but the film isn`t without humor and self-reference. (as the surprise ending will show you)

director tripping on acid
actors volunteer for mind-f**king for four months
+actors take `shrooms before an important scene
=epic film overwrought with symbolism

Such high concentrations of douchebagery wouldn`t be seen for another 30 years.

Looks like some director is saying "HAY LOOK GUISE IM AVANT GARDE!!" But isn`t actually. Instead he`s created something that`s just silly. I`d have to watch the whole movie to be sure, but it doesn`t look like it`s worth the time.
