El Topo (1970)


El Topo (The Mole) is a 1970 Spanish language allegorical, cult western movie and underground film, directed by and starring Alejandro Jodorowsky. Characterized by its bizarre characters and occurrences, use of maimed and dwarf performers, and heavy doses of Christian symbolism and Eastern philosophy, the film is about the eponymous character – a violent, black-clad gunfighter named El Topo and his quest for enlightenment. Only the late 60’s early 70’s could produce such brilliance. This gem also stars Brontis Jodorowsky and José Legarreta. (source: wikipedia.org)
