Zavvi - The Home of Pop CultureA mind-blowing 'acid-western' which shocked and bedazzled audiences upon its controversial original release, El Topo single-handedly invented the American midnight movie phenomenon...Jodorowsky's most violent and notorious film sees the director play 'The Mole' of the title: a black-clad. master gunfighter. In the first half, El Topo journeys across the desert dreamscape with his young son (Brontis Jodorowsky) to duel with four sharp-shooting Zen masters, who each bestow a Great Lesson before they die. In the second half, El Topo becomes the guru of a subterranean tribe of deformed outcasts who he must liberate from depraved cultists in a neighbouring town.A countercultural masterpiece that ingeniously combines iconic Americana symbolism with Jodorowsky's own idiosyncratic surrealist aesthetic, El Topo is an incredible journey through nightmarish violence, mind-bending mysticism and awe-inspiring imagery. This era-defining film is now presented in a stunning new 4K restoration with a wealth of newly produced and archival extras.Special Features:New 4K restoration from the original 35mm camera negative approved by Alejandro JodorowskyHigh Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentation in 1.85:1 and 1.37:1 original aspect ratiosUncompressed mono 1.0 LPCM audio and 5.1 DTS-HD Master AudioOriginal Spanish and English soundtracksNewly translated English, Spanish and French subtitlesAudio commentary by Alejandro JodorowskyJodorowsky remembers El Topo, newly filmed interview filmed in ParisA Conversation with The Son of El Topo, a newly filmed, extensive interview with Brontis Jodorowsky who stars in El TopoThe Father of Midnight Movies, an archival interview with Jodorowsky filmed in 2007Original trailerImage galleries
