123 minutes — R, 35mm, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Mexico, 1989
Yes, it’s the story of a psychotic young man who acts as a pair of arms for his amputee, cult-leader mother. But to call it "a horror film would be unjust to a film that exists outside all categories. [It brings to the screen] horror, poetry, surrealism, psychological pain and wicked humor, all at once." (Roger Ebert) English subtitles
