Classic Americana and avant-garde European cinema sensibilities meet Zen Buddhism and the Bible as master gunfighter and cosmic mystic El Topo (writer/director Alejandro Jodorowsky) tries to defeat four sharp-shooting rivals on an ever-increasingly bizarre path to allegorical self-enlightenment and surreal resurrection. This is the landmark cult film that began the whole Midnight Movie phenomenon of the counterculture crazy 1970s—the most talked about, most shocking and most controversial quasi-Western head trip ever made, transforming the way risk-taking audiences watched edgy, underground films. From the director of The Holy Mountain, Santa Sangre, The Dance of Reality and Endless Poetry.
