El Topo

N.p. Douglas Films, 1970. Collection of eight vintage borderless photographs from the 1970 Mexican film. From the Tele Cine Documentation archive, originally known as the Collection Daniel Bouteiller, with their sticker to the verso of two stills.

A bizarre surrealist Western film, "El Topo" is a mystical allegory for the world's religions, while also hitting all the important plot points of a very violent revenge film. Considered by many to be the first of the midnight movies that became popular in America in the 1970s, Jodorowsky sought to bypass traditional distribution channels and due in part to the recommendation of fans like John Lennon was able to find wider nighttime release. "Set" in Mexico, and shot there on location.

5 x 7 inches. About Fine.
