Surrealism and 4/20

So.. happy 4/20 everyone stay safe!!

Earlier today I was lying on the floor thinking what would be good to publish.

Tic toc tic toc tic toc

When I was happily about to fall asleep something pops up my mind like Oh! I remember ages ago entourage of hippies knelt and worshiped Alejandro Jodorowsky for making "The Bible of LSD" so sounds like pretty good idea to talk about him on a day like this.

 
Most of you will be like who the hell is this guy?? Well! this guy is mostly known for his avant-garde films, his work is filled with violently surreal images and a hybrid blend of mysticism and religious provocation. -Wat? - Basically his films are strange and full of symbolisms. You just need to watch it to understand what am I talking about.

Right now I'm going to rewatch the movies and probably do some commentary on each one of them for another post some other time, I've found a few but none of them seem to understand whats actually going on. Like this guy im linking he addmited he didn't understand the films but he can give you some insight on them if you are interested.

  9. First time I saw The holy Mountain, I saw it as a very disturbing film, but after watching it few other times on different occasions, I finally saw it as a very thought-provoking film and mind opening.
