Alejandro Jodorowsky’s legendary, notorious cult hit essentially created the genre of the Midnight Movie — a spectacle so stunning and bizarre that normal hours couldn’t contain it.

Part of our month-long series, The Films of Alejandro Jodorowsky.

“It remains an intoxicating trip … by turns mesmerizing, grotesque, surreal, satirical, rousing and impenetrable.” – Ben Walters, Time Out London

Incorporating influences from Tarot to the Bible to Zen Buddhism and avante-garde surrealism into a mind-blowing Western genre flick, Jodorowsky cast himself as the mystical, leather-clad gunman, El Topo (‘The Mole”), who wanders through a desert strewn with cosmic symbols on an unnamed quest, leaving blood and carnage in his wake. As our hero battles four sinister, sharp-shooting rivals on an ever-increasingly bizarre path to self-enlightenment and resurrection, Jodorowsky unleashes a torrent of philosophy, religion, startling violence, B-movie references, phallic symbols, odd characters and outrageously strange imagery. Propelled to cult film infamy when a rave from John Lennon helped secure its place as the first true Midnight Movie of the counterculture-crazy1970s, El Topo tops even the most outrageous aesthetic experiments of its radical era and remains unmatched in its provocations and strange beauty.
