The Holy Mountain is currently showing at IFC. There is only one viewing daily at 9:55PM of the film in a new 35mm restoration.

I need to go see it as soon as possible! The SVCD copy I had burned has the sound uncallibrated with the images of the film.

According to World Weird Cinema ABCKO Films has been restoring The Holy Mountain & El Topo for a proper DVD release.

On January 19, 2007 the website digitalbits.com announced that on May 01, 2007 Anchor Bay will release a box set that will include “El Topo”, “The Holy Mountain” and “Fando y Lis”. A limited edition of the set will include both the “El Topo” and “The Holy Mountain” soundtracks. And, in early February 2007, Tartan Video announced its May 14, 2007 release date for the UK PAL DVD editions of El Topo, The Holy Mountain and the 6-disc box set which, alongside the aforementioned feature films, will include the 2 soundtrack CDs, as well as separate DVD editions of Jodorowsky’s 1968 debut feature Fando y Lis (with his 1957 short, La Cravate aka Les t�tes interverties, included as an extra) and the 1994 feature-length documentary La Constellation Jodorowsky. Notably, Fando y Lis and La Cravate were extensively digitally restored and remastered in London during late 2006, thus providing the perfect compliment to the quality restoration work undertaken on El Topo and The Holy Mountain in the States by Abkco, and ensuring that the presentation of Fando y Lis is a significant improvement over the 2001 Fantoma DVD edition. Prior to the availability of these legitimate releases, only inferior quality, optically censored bootleg copies of both El Topo and The Holy Mountain have been circulated illegally on the Internet on DVD.

I am delighted, to say the least. I must remember to order it.

Alejandro looks good for his age.
