Directed by Alejandro Jodorowsky
Frequent readers, why don't you guess if I liked this film? Go on, guess!
What a horrible way to spend two hours. This was absolutely disgusting. I have seen plenty of nauseating visuals in the name of art but this has gotten to be near the top of the list. Forget all the senseless violence in the actual film. What I found most disturbing was that the director's young son, who couldn't be more than eight, was naked for most of the film. What kind of parent would let their son be on screen with full frontal nudity like that? With all the creeps out there, I am not even sure that should be legal.
I won't go into the plot too much. Mostly, it is an extremely trippy allegory of Christ and really, how many of those do we have to see? I personally wanted to throw in the towel with RoboCop.
Originally was an underground film until John Lennon discovered it, fell in love with it, and urged his friend to take charge of distribution.
