Plot Outline:

A Christlike figure wanders through bizarre, grotesque scenarios filled with religious and sacrilegious imagery. He meets a mystical guide who introduces him to seven wealthy and powerful individuals, each representing a planet in the solar system. These seven, along with the protagonist, the guide and the guide's assistant, divest themselves of their worldly goods and form a group of nine who will seek out the Holy Mountain, in order to displace the gods who live there and become immortal. -- Armando

I cant really say this movie is okay, because it isnt just okay. It is somewhere between just so-so movie and good movie. I decided to make compromise and give it 2.5 stars but name for this grade isnt grade for this film, it cant be explained as just okay movie.

Another stunner from Jodorowsky. Just as weird as El Topo, but slightly more accessible. Anyway, the best description I have of this is bizarre. Bizarre yet enthralling - kind of like a car crash.

"Real life awaits us".

The Alchemist: "We began in a fairytale and we came to life, but is this life reality? No. It is a film. We are images, dreams, photographs. We must not stay here. Prisoners! We shall break the illusion. This is magic! Goodbye to the Holy Mountain. Real life awaits us".
