A weird cult film from Alejandro Jodorowsky, which is also one my favorite westerns. Your thoughts on this film.

I'd love to see this - it seems so strange and weird. I remember reading that the director of "El Topo" (1970), Alejandro Jodorowsky, in the middle of the 1970’s got the closest to making an adaptation of "Dune" (David Lynch [a surrealist himself] would eventually go on to direct "Dune" in 1984).

No, I have it on a DVDr but I don't have a program on my PC that can play it! I'll try to fix this!

I don't get it - the VHS was Saudi Arabian but had Japanese subs?

I meant that the fact that there are Japanese subs on an Arabic tape is strange (but yes the film is strange also Wink ).
