1973. Mexico. Dir: Alejandro Jodorowsky. With Horacio Salinas. 114 min.
In this hallucinatory and savagely sacrilegious parable from the EL TOPO filmmaker, a thief, an alchemist, and seven planetary embodiments make a pilgrimage to a mountaintop temple to uncover the secret of immortality. But as birds fly from bullet holes and reptiles reenact the history of Mexico, it seems their dreamy trip might turn out to be a nightmare.
Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. $5.
