EL TOPO (1970)
A mystical gunfighter (played by the director) breezes into town to take down four rivals. As for what happens along the way, well, descriptions differ depending on whom you ask; let’s just say limbless dwarves, a sexy senorita and lots of drug-culture symbology all play a part.

El Topo means the mole. A creature that digs & struggles it's entire life to reach the light - and once reaching it, is blinded by the light. Intentionally or not a very profound film. Good & evil, self realization, birth & death...It's all here.
