El Topo
Alejandro Jodorowsky, 1971, 125 min.

Gunfighter el Topo (the Mole), played by Chilean director Jodorowsky, sets out with his son (played by his actual son, Brontis Jodorowsky) to avenge his dead wife in this Mexican adventure. Upon encountering a terrorized village, el Topo rescues a woman and embarks upon a quest to defeat four mystic master gunfighters. The metaphysical journey that ensues is full of biblical allegory, mysticism, lesbian sex, brutal violence, vengeance, and rebirth, resulting in a surreal, psychedelic Western. Filmed in the stark Mexican desert, El Topo borrows from Leone's spaghetti Western yet presents a bizarre landscape all its own. This restored 35mm print comes from ABCKO films.

$5 general, students, and seniors. Double features: films offered on the same date are included in one ticket.
