ABOUT THE FILM: 

In Spanish with English Subtitles.

It was the landmark cult film that began the Midnight Movie phenomena of the counterculture crazy 1970s. Classic Americana and avant-garde European cinema sensibilities meet Zen Buddhism and the Bible as master gunfighter and cosmic mystic El Topo (played by writer/director Alejandro Jodorowsky) must defeat his four sharp-shooting rivals on an ever-increasingly bizarre path to allegorical self-enlightenment and surreal resurrection.
