It's tempting to say they don't make films like this any more, but I'm not sure anyone has ever made them like Jodorowsky.

Ed Potton, Times (UK)

Has lost little of the maddening, bewildering weirdness that made it a seminal midnight-movie phenomenon.

Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness

It's a bizarre head-trip festival of occult psychedelia, heatstroke visuals, Age-of-Aquarius nude dancing and violence through poster-paint fake blood splattered about the place.

Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
