El Topo (1970) – Pre Impressions

Tonight, or sometime this week, I plan on watching the Mexican Surrealist Western El Topo. I have seen the poster many times but knew very little of the movie. It seems to be something that I will enjoy, falling inline with the likes of Pink Flamingos, Lost Highway, The Andalusian Dog… etc.

I am trying not to think too much about the film, because I know that false or high expectations can often be the death of a film. However, everything I have seen about this film make me think that it will be right up my alley.

From what I understand, I am expecting something of a cross between “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly” and Monty Python, but not funny.

Full review to follow this weekend.
