DescriptionA young man is confined in a mental hospital. Through a flashback we see that he was traumatized as a child, when he and his family were circus performers: he saw his father cut off the arms of his mother, a religious fanatic and leader of the heretical church of Santa Sangre (“Holy Blood”), and then commit suicide. Back in the present, he escapes and rejoins his surviving and armless mother. Against his will, he “becomes her arms” and the two undertake a grisly campaign of murder and revenge.

    Any chance of Jodorowsky’s Holy Mountain?

  2. PS R/L, when are you going to bless us with the Kentucky Jones masterpiece about America’s most misunderstood singer songwriter, we know you’re sitting on an English language copy, maybe the only one in existence or not owned by Tarantino.
    sorry, I didn’t mean to hit send and this was to be added to the above.

  3. wow, not one comment on masterpiece in film, by a mast, Jodorowsky. I remember seeing this in a theater when it came out, what a mind trip. If you don’t know about Jodo, do yerself a favor and check this out. then, El Topo (Thanx R/L), Fando y Lis, then The Holy Mountain. I don’t recommend starting with The Holy Mountain unless you are sincerely a warped, twisted, decadent soul with a mind that can withstand the near constant humping it will receive, sometimes with senses stimulating essential oils, sometimes with 20 grit sandpaper. Of course, yup, I watched The Holy Mountain first, watched it twice through b/c I was in a haze of of WTF just happened, was I dreaming, awaken, frightened, happy, pulling my eyelashes, blissed-out, or viciously violated. Honestly, it was all of the above. I mean he has created his own religion and arguably some of the best graphic novels of all time, a true renaissance man. The 4 films I believe are absurd surrealism at it’s finest. Come to think of it, R/L could you post up your personally autographed copies of Fando y Lis and The Holy Mountain, I think we are ready for those, maybe attach a waiver to The Holy Mountain, something that absolves you from any damage that may occur to a weak mind, as well as from astral phase shifting that may occur to those fertile minds just needing the proper juice to unleash their own super powers. You were kind enough to drop another toe in the water with El Topo, and I like the order you are doing so, letting the work ferment starting out at a leisurely pace with this, some may think, ahhhhh, that is kind of sweet where others may find deeper truths, or bigger myths. Then two years later, cranking it up a few notches, edging us closer to foothills of the holy mountain. Enough blathering form me, but since no one else had not so much as a wink and a nod, I felt obligated. And, of course, I could be absolutely wrong on all this, so, watch for yerself, and just watch with yer head let it bask in the magic, you might have questions afterwards. Oh the questions you will have………..
    KUDOS R/L!
