More Info IMDb

A reckless phantasmagoria of Sixties avant-garde theater, Latin American symbolism, European radical cinema and the furthest reaches of the movie western, EL TOPO chronicles the exploits of a master gunfighter and cosmic mystic (played by director Jodorowsky himself) as he sets out to do battle with four sinister, sharp-shooting rivals. From its John Lennon-approved, nearly fanatical following in the '70s during midnight screenings to its various bootlegged incarnations and forever-announced, never-materialized sequels (at one point starring Marilyn Manson), Alejandro Jodorowsky's EL TOPO remains an enduring cult film experience.
