El Topo

A landmark film that spawned a genre and defined the way a generation watched underground cinema. Championed by John Lennon El Topo started the ?midnight movies? phenomenon in 1970. Classic Americana and avant-garde European cinema sensibilities meet Zen Buddhism and the Bible as master gunfighter and cosmic mystic El Topo (played by Alejandro Jodorowsky) must defeat his four sharp-shooting rivals on an increasingly bizarre path to allegorical self-enlightenment and surreal resurrection. Special screening at the Melbourne International Film Festival on 3 August
