Together they begin a pilgrimage to the Holy Mountain, in order to displace the gods who live there and become immortal.
“The Holy Mountain is beautifully shot and designed, and it suggests what might have resulted if Luis Buñuel, Michelangelo Antonioni, and George Romero had all dropped acid and made a movie together.” All Movie Guide
