There's plenty to offend everyone here. Shot in Mexico by the Chilean-born actor/writer/director Alexandro Jodorowsky,El Topo which translates as The Mole is the cult film fan's cult film. A brief description would do scant justice to the bewildering array of images - some witty, some bleak and some so obscure that only Jodorowsky himself can have the foggiest idea what they actually mean. But, given the knowledge that the references range from Fellini and Buñuel to Marcel Marceau and the Bible, you will get a better idea of just how eclectic this western (yes, western!) really is.
