Film — El Topo

Having heard about it first many years ago in the pages of A&E, I finally got a chance to see Jodorowsky's enigmatic film of the Weird West.

Starting off as what seems to be an ultra-violent Clint Eastwood style spaghetti western, it turns into Zen quest, a tale of redemption, and then starts the cycle off all over again.

My main thoughts were to wryly observe where sensibilities have shifted in the last 35 years; and that I'm not sure what the two women with male voices were meant to represent.
