I think a lot of people have at least heard of this movie. It is one of my personal favorites. The Holy Mountain, from genius Alejandro Jodorowsky,  is about a group of people that seek immortality from The Holy Mountain. The character you meet first is suppose to be a Jesus-like guy, who also has a small torso that follows him around, oh, and hookers.

deer carcas?
You get to experience some South American history played out with the use of frogs dressed up as Conquistadors as the hand-less, leg-less torso guy follows the Jesus-like guy around town. I’ll spare the wackness you get to see, as it is just too nutty for me to explain.

The Jesus-like character finds a mentor (who is played by Jodorowsky himself), who becomes the teacher for a group of (crazy ass) people looking for the Holy Mountain. This guy is awesome. The other members of the group are from different planets, each one gives an introduction of their planet and businesses. The journey to the Holy Mountain is quite epic and my writings will nowhere near give it the credit this movie deserves. Whatever Jodorowsky was smoking when he thought of this, I want some.

Overall, great movie, a must watch. It might not all make sense to you at first, but give it your full attention. This movie is on our Top 10 List of WTF Movies. Bet you didn’t know you could turn your excrement into gold did ya?
