If I don’t have a sea lion (If you know what I mean), can I still bend it?
Someday, we will find out what bending the sea lion means, and that day shall be glorious.
Amelie bends my sea lion.
So, Yesterday my sister (The Golden Protractor) and I decided to watch Manos: The Hands of fate. It happened to be the Mystery Science Theater version, which added lots of laughs, but really, possible the worst movie ever made.
And today, she introduced me to The Holy Mountain. It was like reading a picture book. With half of the pages missing. In Latin. God, it’s confusing. There’s political and religious imagery at every single scene, and I don’t catch any of it. I wanted to turn it off, and run away. But it’s like watching a car crash. You just can’t look away.
Also, Abraham Lincoln on a boat.
Wow, I wasn’t expecting the drawing to double as an oceanscape! I like the happy scuba diver and the happy fish who may be happy because he plans on eating said diver.
Also, that’s a great description of The Holy Mountain. After the conquest of the Aztecs as reenacted by frogs, you’ve pretty much no choice but to wait and see what’s next.
Also also, Monster A Go-Go is actually worse than Manos: The Hands of Fate. I mean, it’s so seriously bad that even the MST3K version is insufferable.
My favorite character in The Holy Mountain: the magician with the swastika on his hat. Or maybe the fat guy dressed as the Virgin Mary. Or maybe the woman with the teal pubes. Or maybe…
THAT is what standardized testing makes me produce. Not well thought out open responses, not an exemplary display of my knowledge. That.
I’ve read a few reviews of the holy mountain, and they range from talking about how amazing the movie is, and how profound the imagery is, to the general WTF I experienced.
I’ll have to check out Monster A Go-Go. Sounds…. terrifying.
Really, I don’t recommend it.
