Overview

Unavailable in the United States since their final midnight theatrical screenings in the late-'70s, Alejandro Jodorowsky's hallucinatory masterworks El Topo and The Holy Mountain finally arrive on stateside shores courtesy of ABKCO Films and Anchor Bay Home Entertainment. Championed by John Lennon for its visionary counterculture edginess, El Topo is largely considered to be the first true "Midnight Movie," and also includes a director's commentary track, an on-camera interview with the director, an original theatrical trailer, a photo gallery, and script excerpts. Jodorowsky's audacious follow-up to El Topo, the existential meditation on illusion versus reality entitled The Holy Mountain, also comes packaged with a satisfying collection of bonus materials. In addition to a feature commentary track by the director himself, this release of The Holy Mountain also includes an on-camera interview with Jodorowsky, an original theatrical trailer, a photo gallery, and script excerpts. Also included in this impressive collection is Jodorowsky's "lost" 1957 short film La Cravate, an abstract film about a girl who sells human heads. When the girl swaps the craniums of a sensitive poet and a brutish boxer, the bodies begin to experience a startling transformation. The feature-length Jodorowsky documentary La Constellation Jodorowsky originally included on the special edition DVD of Fando & Lis is also included, as is the director's 1967 debut Fando & Lis, and the original soundtracks to El Topo and The Holy Mountain.

    A brief review

    A wonderful collection of the artists early work. Inspired me to do more digging. I also have to admit being amused. I can only imagine how "mind blowing" these films must have seemed at their release.
