Holy Mountain

holy surrealism i’m seeing this tonight: The Holy Mountain (1973)

After being placed on a cross by children and then saved by a legless dwarf, a man wanders through Mexico City where he becomes regarded as a messianic figure. Eventually he passes through a giant chimney into the realm of an alchemist. The alchemist gives the man mystical instruction and then introduces him to eight others from various walks of life. The alchemist tells them of the holy mountain where nine men who have discovered immortality secretly rule the world. It is the alchemist’s intention that he and his recruits will kill the nine masters and take their place. And so they set out on a journey to the mountain, during which they must undergo mystical understanding in order to complete the task. [moria]
