>Plotwise it's barebones
I thought the ending rounded it up nicely with the thematic of their blood line being cyclical, as the ending sequence practically leads to the beginning scene.
But still it was pretty pretentious at times, with nods and references obscure enough for most publics.
lol, it wasn't rare back then in rural towns to have butt nekid children prancing around but for a movie i agree it's a bit risky, thematically it kinda fits because he never had any clothes after wandering the desert and the only two costumes he knows of are a franciscan monk's and his own father's leather one.
Taking into account the director and producer's background i would be very suspicious but it seems the kid Jodorowsky's own son so the usual thing to happen should've not
happened... but who knows, they don't think like we humans do.
>I'd actually want to watch something similar like this
I remember discussing something similar and one anon recommending another film but i don't quite remember which one was, there's two names in my mind: 1970's Deadlock
and 1969's Antonio das Mortes
, the latter being the sequel of 1964's Black God, White Devil
which goes about a gunslinger who hangs around and talks to a voodoo dude, kinda reminiscent of the scene were the Topo hangs around with The 4th Gunslinger.
The director Rocha was a social character in Mexico around the same era Jodorowsky was (late 60's) so i don't doubt the chilean jew taking some tips from him or his work, can't say because i still haven't seen the films.
