Musician Chris McGarry cannot explain what it is about surrealist filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky that he loves so much. That doesn't stop us from trying for an hour and a bit. We talk The Holy Mountain, Dune, The Dance of Reality, but most especially the one that started it all, El Topo. The first midnight movie, an original cult classic, El Topo set the tone for a whole generation of filmmakers to come. If you wanted to be weird, you getta be weirder than this.

Keep up with everything Chris is doing via his website or his Facebook page for his honkey tonk band, Chris McGarry and the Insomniacs!

Join us as we discuss the cult classic, plot holes and all, and why sometimes two Jeff Bridges are not better than one.
