Product Description

The scandal of the 1973 Cannes Film Festival, writer/director Alejandro Jodorowsky's flood of sacrilegious imagery and existential symbolism is a spiritual quest for enlightenment pitting illusion against truth. The Alchemist (Jodorowsky) assembles together a group of people from all walks of life to represent the planets in the solar system. The occult adept's intention is to put his recruits through strange mystical rites and divest them of their wordly baggage before embarking on a trip to Lotus Island. There they ascend the Holy Mountain to displace the immortal gods who secretly rule the universe.

It would appear that this title may have gone out of print, but is now back in print. If you have seen El Topo, another film of Alejandro Jodorowsky, then you can appreciate the type of film that this is.

Fully of imagery, symbolism, and mayham,....is about someone on a quest to gain understanding of life pretty much.

I would buy El Topo first, before you Holy Mountain, as it might not please all audiences. Those cult film fans looking for their fix of something over-the-top, well this is over the top.

film fait pour des "initiés" ou des fanatiques de Jodorowski, amusant quand on le regardait pendant les années 70 à cause de son côté provocateur, mais complètement délirant et toujours incompréhensible de nos jours. il a maintenant beaucoup perdu de son côté provocateur, reste seulement le côté absurde, incompréhensible.... il reste qu'il y a des images fortes , parfois belles, mais il faut se cramponner pour le voir en entier.....

I watched El Topo immediately upon buying the Alejandro Jodorowsky DVDs a month or so ago. I've made the assertion that El Topo is one of my favorite movies ever made in a prior review, and The Holy Mountain was waiting in the wings. I have seen The Holy Mountain before but I only owned a Japanese bootleg. So I've had plenty of time to work out my ideas toward what The Holy Mountain is about and I do believe it justifies more than one or two viewings. I've never understood this film but I figured it was because I didn't try as hard at understanding it as I did with El Topo. However, at this point I've exhausted all my efforts and I will admit that with the Holy Mountain I'm stumped. I have no idea what this movie is trying to say.

The Holy Mountain opens with our protagonist, the thief who looks like Jesus Christ, befriending a deformed dwarf. A bunch of wax versions of the thief looking crucified are created and distributed throughout the community and the thief eats the face off of one of them and ties it to a bunch of balloons. The character played by Jodorowsky, the alchemist, summons the thief to approach his giant tower. There at the alchemist's tower, we are introduced to seven people whose names reference some of the nine planets. The alchemist urges them to destroy their material things and then they all go to the Holy Mountain. When they get there, Jodorowsky speaks to the cast, the crew and the audience outside of the context of the film. He says that we should leave the Holy Mountain and that real life is awaiting us.

The Holy Mountain has flashes of the religious allegorical commentary that Jodorowsky makes in El Topo, but here perhaps his brushes are too broad for me to pick up on.
