Too much perfection is a mistake


El Topo (1970)

A mysterious black-clad gunfighter wanders a mystical Western landscape encountering multiple bizarre characters as he confronts warrior Masters on a trans-formative desert journey. El Topo (the mole) claims to be God, riding a horse through a spiritual landscape strewn with ancient Eastern religious symbols. El Topo’s surreal way is bloody, sexual and self-reflective, musing of his own demons, as he tries to vanquish those he encounters.
