This film is part of our monthly showcase of fringe, underrated, weirdo cinema called Mondo Moxie.

A Christlike figure wanders through bizarre, grotesque scenarios filled with religious and sacrilegious imagery. He meets a mystical alchemist who introduces him to seven wealthy and powerful people. These seven - along with the protagonist, alchemist, and alchemist’s assistant - divest themselves of their worldly goods, and form a group of nine who will seek The Holy Mountain.

Truly the epitome of a “midnight movie”… Mondo Moxie is proud to be bringing Alejandro Jodorowsky’s epic exploration of religion and global socio-political trends to you this March.

"Not even Buñuel with a brainful of Woodstock's bad brown acid could have made something this gloriously screwy."
- David Fear, Time Out New York
"Neither for the faint of heart or the linear of thinker, The Holy Mountain qualifies both as a fascinating period relic and an enduringly transfixing jaw-dropper."
- Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"Alejandro Jodorowsky's Holy Mountain is a dazzling, rambling, often incoherent satire on consumerism, militarism and exploitation."
- Matt Zoller Seitz, New York Times
"Jodorowsky loves to confront the viewer with endless brutality and grotesque decadence and degradation, but here he expresses it with a rich, densely visual imagination."
- Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
