Yes! Yes! a thousand times yes!
When frightened, the Aztec warrior is able to shoot a stream of blood from its eye that may reach a distance of three feet. This defensive tactic, however, is ineffective against the inexplicable offensive capabilities of the European conquistador.
I laughed, I cried, I think some reptiles got blown to shit there at the end. All art should be like this.
OH MY GOD
-1 because of awesome frog and lizard deaths
What the FUCK Mexico! Jesus.
If you enjoyed this scene, I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend you search out this movie. You have witnessed only the tiniest tip of the iceberg.
Some other things this movie has to offer:
1. Turning shit into gold.
2. A sex machine which gives birth to a baby sex machine when it reaches clmax.
3. Corporate decisions being made based on the moistness of a mummified woman's vagina.
4. People who get shot and then bleed sparrows.
5. Amputee midgets.
And then do check out some other Jodorowsky films like Santa Sangre or his masterpiece El Topo.
I just watched this again after years. It was my first Jodorowsky movie and spurned me to watch his small but powerful body of work.
I think he's one of the greatest artists of our time.
If you can track down the DVD that has his first feature, Fando y Lis, it comes with a documentary on him called Constellation Jodorowsky.
It's pretty essential viewing if you consider yourself a creative person and suffer any of the common terrors and insecurities that go with the territory.
P.S. that sparrow scene was re-used by another genius that only made seven films, Andrei Tarkovsky, in his last film "Nostalghia," which he partially directed from his deathbed.
Lizardmen vs. The Empire? How many points?
