In a corrupt, greed-fueled world, a powerful alchemist leads a messianic character and seven materialistic figures to the Holy Mountain, where they hope to achieve enlightenment. [114 min; sci-fi, fantasy; English and Spanish with English subtitles]

"So extreme in its sacrilege that it achieves a kind of sacredness, The Holy Mountain is a transcendental feast of the grotesque and the sublime." — Bill White, Seattle Post-Intelligencer

"A landmark of visionary filmmaking pitched somewhere between magic ritual and surreal burlesque." — The Wall Street Journal

"This is an extraordinary visual concoction, loaded with stunning primary colors, anti-religious caricatures drawn from Diego Rivera and a succession of dreamlike, grotesque vistas worthy of Dali at his most deranged." — Andrew O'Heir, Salon
