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.
