El Topo
.................this is really some off the wall hot shit. so this western gunslinger has to defeat these different adversaries. kind of like "ninja scroll". it's kind of buddhist, but also kind of a commentary on plato and western philosophy. it's really a mangled imperfect work though......like the writing is several different stories strung together by almost nothing. some strange lesbian shit too, commentary on sex, close-up of two female tongues touching each other like hesitant iguana tongues, slippery and saliva strands, erotic and full of death-sex. filmed by the dead sea, you get this real sense of the dry dry dry desert of the post-apocalypse, riding through the desert on horse, time has no meaning.
