The Alchemist (Alejandro Jodorowsky) assembles together a group of people from all walks of life to represent planets in the solar system. The occult adept s intention is to put the recruits though strange mystical rites and divest them of their worldly baggage before embarking on a trip to Lotus Island where they ascend The Holy Mountain to displace the immortal gods who secretly rule the universe. The big budget follow-up to Alejandro Jodorowsky's El Topo, The Holy Mountain premiered at the 1973 Cannes Film Festival, causing riots to break out in response to Jodorowsky s flood of sacrilegious imagery, existential symbolism and spiritual quest for entitlement pitting illusion against truth. Visually and viscerally, the film is a masterwork that benefitted greatly from a labor intensive 2K scan restoration, which enhanced The Holy Mountain's color palate from its initial release. Bonus material: Feature commentary by Alejandro Jodorowsky, Subtitled features, bonus material, and commentary tracks, On camera interview with Alejandro Jodorowsky, Original theatrical trailer, Photo Gallery/Original script excerpts.
