Film Classics in 35mm! The Films of Alejandro Jodorowsky

THE HOLY MOUNTAIN

LA MONTAŅA SAGRADA
Mexico, United States | 1973 | Alejandro Jodorowsky

THE HOLY MOUNTAIN

Jodorowsky’s follow-up to his midnight hit El Topo (see 8/18 at 7:00) is perhaps the strangest and most visually splendiferous of his career. The film charts a spiritual quest toward enlightenment in which an alchemist (Jodorowsky) leads a Christ-like thief and seven other disciples (each representing one of the planets) to the Holy Mountain. There they will overthrow the immortal beings who secretly rule the universe. “This is an extraordinary visual concoction, loaded with stunning primary colors, anti-religious caricatures drawn from Diego Rivera and a succession of dreamlike, grotesque vistas worthy of Dalí at his most deranged.” –Salon. “Not even Buñuel with a brainful of Woodstock's bad brown acid could have made something this gloriously screwy.” –Time Out. No one under 18 admitted! Subtitles. 35mm. 114 min.

Special admission $11; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $8; no passes, twofers, or radio winners.
