Brainsturbator has done a salute to Alejandro Jodorowsky that includes a brief biography and excerpts from interviews. I just saw both El Topo and Holy Mountain in the theater here in Portland. El Topo I didn’t really get, but enjoyed watching. Holy Mountain, though, I loved. If you get a chance to see these movies in the theater as part of the current theatrical release, I strongly suggest you do so. Otherwise, the DVDs will be out in a month.
Interesting tidbit from the Brainsturbator profile: Holy Mountain was based on Mount Analogue. I haven’t read it, but I’ve heard great things.
