Dali & Beyond Film Series: The Holy Mountain
A film that screams “product of its time,” The Holy Mountain was Alejandro Jodorowsky’s dizzying elegy to the sex, drugs and spiritual awakening of the late 1960s and early 1970s — a suitably bizarre follow-up to his El Topo (1971). Fascinating although it only fitfully makes sense, 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. A Christ-like vagrant and thief wanders through a perverse and unfriendly land until he encounters an enlightened one, who gathers the thief and six of the world’s most powerful individuals for a spiritual pilgrimage. If that description sounds a bit sketchy, well, narrative isn’t this film’s strongest suit. But if you want to see the conquest of Mexico re-enacted by reptiles, soldiers shoot innocent people as birds fly from their wounds, and a wizard turn feces into gold, this is the movie for you. 1973. Rating: R. 1 hr. 54 min. 1-3pm.

One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest (Sat & Sun)
This undeniable American classic of literature, stage, and film tells the harrowing story of one man’s struggle against his own oppression and that of those around him. McMurphy plans to serve out his sentence in a mental institution that he thinks will be a better alternative to prison. His plan doesn’t account for one Nurse Ratched who rules the hospital with an iron fist. The two lock horns in a battle that promises to end badly for one or both as every life McMurphy touches is transformed. Some are lost and others redeemed in this modern allegory about freedom, oppression, bravery, and the power of the individual to create change. freeFall’s immersive staging will place you in the center of this riveting story that WNYC Radio said, “transforms the audience into one wild cheering section.” Sat 8pm; Sun 2pm. Tickets. freefall Theatre 6099 Central Ave.
