Pic o'the Day

Been a while since I posted one of these, so here's the poster for Alejandro Jodorowsky's sacrilegious, bizarre, and profound 1973 film The Holy Mountain. One of the best films by one of my all-time favorite filmmakers. "I promised you the great secret and I will not disappoint you. Is this the end of our adventure? Nothing has an end. We came in search of the secret of immortality, to be immortal like the Gods and here we are, mortals, more human than ever. If we have not obtained immortality at least we have obtained reality. We began in a fairy tale and we came to life, but is this life reality? No, it is a film. Zoom back camera. We are images, dreams, photographs. We must not stay here prisoners. We shall break the illusion. This is Maja. Goodbye to the Holy Mountain. Real life awaits us."
