Re: Santa Sangre

I bought it on a bootleg DVD at a con last year. I never expected to get a good dvd release let alone a blue ray.

I think El Topo is Jodorowsky's best film.

Re: Santa Sangre

I watched it a couple of weeks ago and really enjoyed it.  Followed it up with Holy Moutain, which I just couldn't get into.  But, I am going to give El Toppo a whirl sometime soon.

Agreed. This movie was so beautifully shot. Her revenge was so liberating at first, but I loved how he was able to break away from his mother in the end.

Re: Santa Sangre

Loved SANTA SANGRE.  Failed to see how EL TOPO became a cult film, though-almost unwatchable, if you ask me.

Re: Santa Sangre

Mever even heard of this flick, but it sounds right up my alley. Thanks for resurrecting this thread GD.
