The Holy Mountain (1973, dir. Alejandro Jodorowsky)

“I believe that the only end of all human activity – whether it be politics, art, science, etc. – is to find enlightment, to reach the state of enlightenment. I ask of film what most North Americans ask of psychedelic drugs. The difference being that when one creates a psychedelic film, he need not create a film that shows the visions of a person who has taken a pill; rather, he needs to manufacture the pill.”

-Jodorowsky, quoted in El Topo: a book of the film
