Film Classics in 35mm! The Films of Alejandro Jodorowsky
Mexico, Spain | 1970 | Alejandro Jodorowsky
Alejandro Jodorowsky’s trippy, sexy, underground epic was the first midnight-movie hit, and became a counterculture touchstone during the early 1970s. The film is a surreal, symbol-laden religious allegory disguised as an ultraviolent spaghetti western—about a mystical master gunfighter (Jodorowsky) who dispatches a lot of people before seeking redemption. The film is strikingly photographed in color against dramatic desert landscapes, and evokes the worlds of Buñuel and Fellini in its fascination with freaks, midgets, and the deformed. John Lennon proclaimed it a masterpiece. The title translates as “The Mole.” No one under 18 admitted! Subtitles. 35mm. 125 min.
