Alejandro Jodorowsky's daring and psychedelic films of the early 1970's cemented his status as the Godfather of the Midnight Movie. This series dives into the man himself through his latest, larger-than-life auto-biographical tale ENDLESS POETRY (2016), a documentary about the filmmaker’s quest to make the greatest masterpiece that never was, JODOROWSKY'S DUNE (2013), plus a midnight screening of HOLY MOUNTAIN (1973), of course.
MIDNIGHT MOVIE: THE HOLY MOUNTAIN
Join us for the freakiest of freaky journeys at this classic midnight screening. “Few filmmakers have been as committed as Alejandro Jodorowsky in supplying grotesque, surreal, symbolic, and hallucinatory images. After introducing a thief (Horacio Salinas) who appears like a modern-day incarnation of Christ, Jodorowsky uses the next few minutes to show him nearly crucified by naked boys with green-painted genitalia, getting rescued by a limbless dwarf, and chewing on a wax representation of himself before sending it to the heavens on colorful balloons. And then things get a little strange…” - AV Club
