Dir. Alexandro Jodorowsky, USA, 1973, 115 min
A scandal when first released, Jodorowsky’s movie is a dazzling, rambling, often incoherent satire on consumerism, militarism and the exploitation of third world cultures by the West. Unfurling like a hallucinogenic daydream; a free-association narrative follows a Christ-like character, the Thief, first seen lying in a dusty street. He is rescued (maybe resurrected) by a gang of boys, then wanders through the city observing the madness of modern life, including a massacre of protesters by riot soldiers (an event photographed by rich tourists) and a tribute to the Spanish conquest of Mexico, re-enacted by costumed lizards on a scale model of Aztec pyramids. The second half finds the Thief joining a group of emblematic religious figures to attack the mountaintop fortress of society’s rulers, the Immortals.
