Review

Don’t expect culty camp. Instead, this beautiful, expertly made film is deep stuff: a dreamlike meditation on violence, redemption, and fate.

El icono: The Film Society of Lincoln Center’s screening of Jodorowsky’s zonkedout, allegorical 1970 Westernóthe original midnight-movie classicówill be followed by a conversation with the man himself, as well as FSLC program director Richard Peña.
