Ageing enfant terrible and master cult filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky returned to the fray after a decade long hiatus to present his incendiary, hallucinatory parable Santa Sangre, every bit as madcap and compelling as his early hits El Topo and Holy Mountain. Santa Sangre is a temple torn down by bulldozers over the protestations of its leader Concha, the wife of an unfaithful circus performer and the mother of Fenix (Jodorowsky’s son Axel). The Church is built on a gruesome crime scene, the first of many trials for the young Fenix which lead to his incarceration in a mental asylum.
