El Topo (4K)

Alejandro Jodorowsky / MX, 1968 / 124 min.

The triumph of Alejandro Jodorowsky's second feature started in late 1970 at a New York arthouse cinema, where it was programmed as a night screening without any real publicity. Within no time, there were long queues at the box office; and the midnight movie phenomenon was born.

After saving a woman from the clutches of a gang of bandits in the desert, the black-clad avenger El Topo (Jodorowsky himself) sets out to eliminate four infamous gunslingers. He awakes four years later, having been shot, in a cave complex inhabited by a community of misshapen people who worship him as their god. El Topo gets to work to lead ‘his’ people to freedom.
