Jodorowsky is cinema's Salvador Dali. The Mexican surrealist, who made his most iconic films in the early '70s, previously inspired the likes of John Lennon, who helped distribute Jodorowsky's El Topo in the U.S. to the midnight movie crowd. Films like 1973's The Holy Mountain and 1989's Santa Sangre were acid trips put to celluloid, dripping with religious iconography, Confucian philosophy, and a David Lynchian cadre of society's outcasts and misfits. It's impossible to watch Animal Collective's experimental visual assault ODDSAC — leaking with hallucinatory visuals and fractured narratives — and not find Jodorowsky's fingerprints all over it.
