MEXICO | 125 minutes | 1970

Jodorowsky’s legendary “acid Western” caused a sensation as a 1970s midnight movie.
An outlaw in black travels with his son through the desert, where he must defeat four gun masters... And so begins an epic metaphysical quest. Known for the power and quirkiness of its imagery, strongly influenced by Christian symbolism and Eastern philosophy, El Topo established its director once and for all as the grand master of cinematic Surrealism.
