A nameless thief wanders the streets of Mexico City, worshipped and reviled by those he meets, until he comes to the home of a mysterious alchemist who recruits him to join a band of nine people. Their mission: take over the Holy Mountain and depose its inhabitants, thus attaining universal knowledge and immortality. Writer/director Alejandro Jodorowsky ("El Topo") once again blends New Testament imagery with the surrealism of Buñuel for a bizarre and at times bewildering cinema odyssey. Horácio Salinas, Zamira Saunders, and Jodorowsky star. 114 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
