El Topo

El Topo

A mysterious gunslinger with no name (Jodorowsky) journeys aimlessly through a surreal vision of the American West, his experiences layered with meaning as he battles temptation and human failure on the path to sainthood. El Topo is the ultimate Acid Western, the first midnight movie, a phenomenon of allusion and allegory, and one of the most important films of the Sixties counterculture. Unmissable.
