A grotesque tale rich in allegory and sacrilegious imagery as a thief is first crucified then enlisted by an alchemist to join a group of elites who seek divinity and immortality.
A different review sums up the movie in one sentence: A surreal 1970's mind trip.
To which I can add little other than it was a totally entertaining movie in the sense that I was never sure what was going to happen.
I held something of a running dialogue with myself during the movie, which Lydia did not seem entirely pleased with.
Me: Oh, that lady's got a monkey! Now Jesus is carrying a sculpture of himself. Look, they're in the eyeball room. That man has goats. The lizards are wearing hats!
Lydia: Do you even hear what you're saying?
