You know, it’s probably been about 20 years since I saw La Montaña Sagrada and I guarantee you I was not in a position back then to truly appreciate it, however much I thought I did. I should remedy that.
I thought Holy Mountain was sort of predictable. Shallow, hippie-Tarot knock-off Parajanov. But, Pomegranates makes me cry; I’m biased.
It’s not my favorite thing by him — that’d probably be Santa Sangre — but it has it’s charms.
I love Holy Mountain and other works by Jodorowsky. (Especially the Incal and Before the Incal) Perhaps it’s a generational thing, but he deeply inspired me by his images and symbols.
He’s definitely inspired me as well. Makes me wish I knew Spanish, too, as there’s all kinds of interviews with him and lectures on Youtube.
The English interviews are hilarious so I can only imagine what the French and Spanish ones are like. He spends a lot of his time teaching tarot and his own philosophical ideas of magic.
