February 16, 2011
A surreal circus of invention, pretension and astonishment that, like many carnivals, touts the talents of its performers but knows most customers came to gawk at the freaks.

... certainly the most accessible "Jodorowksy film," a vision filled with circus imagery, surreal scenes, grotesque violence and psycho-sexual trauma.
January 31, 2011
An essential work of phantasmagorical cinema.

Unforgettable, whether you like it or not.
February 26, 2008
One of Jodorowsky's finest films, this art horror movie resonates with all the disturbing power of a clammy nightmare filtered through the hallucinatory lens of 1960s psychedelia.
February 26, 2008
The Mel Brooks of vulgar surrealism, Jodorowsky's basic principle is that if you throw 30 outrageous ideas at the audience, 2 or 3 are bound to make an impression.

It's a weird film.

March 16, 2007
A mishmash of religious and Freudian symbolism amid torrential bloodshed topped with Fellini flourishes.
August 29, 2006
A film that no adventurous moviegoer can afford to miss.

Santa Sangre is cobbled together from parts, in the best possible way.

Santa Sangre is as familiarly esoteric as Jodorowsky's other efforts, but it possesses very pronounced influences.
May 20, 2003
Mr. Jodorowsky offers a very polished game of interpretation. His eccentric film relies on the viewer's willingness to play along.
March 10, 2003
[A] wild explosion of movie madness that culls from Freud, Jung, and surrealism to create a bloody circus of the mind.
August 26, 2002
Fascinatingly perverse artsy horror film
| Original Score: 4/5
January 1, 2000
The quality that Jodorowsky has above all is passionate sincerity. Apart from his wildly creative style, apart from his images, apart from his story inventions, he has strong moral feelings.

The result is nonsense of a very extravagant, alienating, private sort.
