The Holy Mountain are as fantastic, intense and hallucinatory an experience as anything any weird movie alchemist has ever conjured. It contains imagery correspondingly sacrilegious it would make Buuel spontaneously manage to pay for the sign of the annoyed, and therefore uncertain it would create David Lynch throw taking place his hands in annoyance. This outstretched commencement segment may be as innocent a acquit yourself of surrealism as has ever been filmed; for unconditional passion, audacity and agonizing silliness, the thief once Christs points journey through a depraved, nightmarish Mexican city is hard to obliterate.
Though many locate The Holy Mountains narrative weak (if not infuriatingly well along), the gloss does easily fracture into three acts: the Thiefs adventures in the city, his apprenticeship to the Alchemist inside the tower, and the vacation to and ascent of the Holy Mountain itself. Each segment has its own aesthetic sensibility, though retaining their in plan of fact demented Jodorowskyness, and together they form a loose allegory more or less the souls quest for enlightenment: from energetic in a corrupt world to the first stirrings of a spiritual wisdom to the actual climb towards enlightenment.
