WTF Movie of the Week: Holy Mountain
A Christlike figure wanders through bizarre, grotesque scenarios filled with religious and sacrilegious imagery. He meets a mystical guide who introduces him to seven wealthy and powerful individuals, each representing a planet in the solar system. These seven, along with the protagonist, the guide and the guide's assistant, divest themselves of their worldly goods and form a group of nine who will seek out the Holy Mountain, in order to displace the gods who live there and become immortal. - Marty Cassady
This is probably the trippiest and most ridiculous movie I have ever seen. You could also spend hours on end interpreting all the religious and ancient symbolism in this film. For all you stoners out there, this is entertainment gold.
P.S. the trailer is not exactly safe for work. Couldn't find a video for it online, but i'm sure if you dig around a little you could.
