The psychedelic masterpiece about Jesus searching for enlightenment.

The Holy Mountain gives the omniscient view of what social engineering caused by greed has done to the modern world, but shows us how to live and not give into a material world.
Alejandro Jodorowsky’s flood of sacrilegious imagery and existential symbolism is a spiritual quest for enlightenment pitting illusion against truth. The Alchemist assembles together a group of people from all walks of life to represent the planets in the solar system. The occult adept’s intention is to put his recruits through strange mystical rites and divest them of their wordly baggage before embarking on a trip to Lotus Island. There they ascend the Holy Mountain to displace the immortal gods who secretly rule the Universe.

Search of Experience

Instead we explore further and further and further without looking for an answer. We go on deeper and deeper and deeper and deeper, until we reach the point where there is no answer. At that point we tend to give up hope of an answer, or of anything whatsoever, for that matter.
This hopelessness is the essence of crazy wisdom.
