I was really stoked for it after you raved about it and actually saved it for my Christmas Day Decemberdike film.

No, it's okay, you're forgiven. There were plenty of other fine films i watched as you'll see when you read the What Films Have You Seen? thread.

I had heard so much about El Topo and The Holy Mountain over the years. Back in the day it was THE cult film to see and was extremely difficult to get hold of. Then I got a copy of both and sat down eagerly to watch them.

You read all these reviews saying, "Surreal", "Masterpiece" and "A mind trip"...well El Topo could be described as all of those but could also be called, "Nonsensical", "Confusing" and "Up its own arse!"
Some of the compositions are art itself, beautifully portrayed and scoped in a "picture is worth a thousand words" way. I'm sure there are underlying meanings I'm far too thick to get, allegories that are just beyond my conscious level. I just didn't get it. It's watchable but not twice. I think it would be far better under the influence (Not a recommendation, okay?) of LSD or psilocybin but without those, best of luck, mate!

It put me of watching The Holy Mountain so much that I have never got around to watching it. It's me, my fault, I just don't understand what they're trying to tell me when they cut open a person and birds fly out the wound - anyone help me with that one? Everyone else calls it a masterpiece and lavishes praise on it so I guess I'm just a Philistine wandering around Fulci's Beyond.

Would love to read what others opinions are of these two.

I haven't seen it and wish to know what a normal chap thinks of it rather than a member of the 'Arthouse' crowd.
Nordy, a 'normal chap'?! Has the world gone insane!?!

Both great pick-ups. Seeding of a Ghost is one of my favourite Shaw Bros. films.
