Holy Mountaineering

Not differentiating between any one thing & any other thing.





cuteye69 asked: Hey, can you recommend me some other movies like the holy mountain? I presume you must be into this kind of thing.

So, I’ve made a couple posts about this over the years but I’ll save you the time and facepalm of digging into my archival fuckery.

The Holy Mountaineering Unorganized List of Rad Occult Themed Movies That Are Not The Holy Mountain, 2014®  

The Saragossa Manuscript

A very Polish comedy with so many stories inside of stories you can forget who was where and that’s kinda the point. One of the few films I’ve ever seen that has similar effects as hallucinogens the first time viewed. 

Occult elements- Strange journeys through wastes, hauntings, Qabalists, enhanced religious conversion techniques, and of course the Spanish Inquisition, which no one expected.

Lucifer Rising

Kenneth Anger’s Thelemic art house cinema explosion. For this film I’d suggest ketamine. Be aware, this film is more of a motion and there is no verbal dialog whatsoever. 

Occult elements- Jimmy Page holding the Stele of Revealing looking longingly at a picture of Aleister Crowley and literally every single other scene in the movie. This is the most Occult film you’re ever going to see. 

Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome

Another Anger flick with no dialog and heavy on occult symbology and general weird shit. The premise is more or less a High Mass for the Gods. This film also features some influential people in their own right like Marjorie Cameron and Anaïs Nin.

Occult elements- All of it. The whole film

Basically any other Kenneth Anger film

Because I don’t wanna go through them one by one.

The Ninth Gate

If you judged this movie by the cover you might not want to watch it. Johnny Depp is an antiquarian book dealer who gets brought into a touch of weird occultiness trying to find a client a particular occult book.

Occult elements- Antiquarian books on ceremonial magic and some fiery sex magic. 

Eyes Wide Shut

Honestly this movie barely made the list because it’s the most overrated film in this category and The Ninth Gate is actually better for the occult aspects of weird rich people as portrayed by Hollywood stars. The actual shots in this movie as well as the sets make it worth seeing.

Occult elements- Pseudo initiations, sweet robes, and the rich and powerful being creepy and generally untrustworthy.

Any Alejandro Jodorowsky film you haven’t seen yet

Most of his films have very prevalent occult themes, especially regarding attachment and false attainment.

Occult elements- Spiritual Journeys nearly always with people who represent material attachment and a boat load of other stuff.

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus

I’m reasonably certain that director Terry Gilliam is not a freemason but this movie is rife with the symbolism of freemasonry. The plot is pretty straightforwardly about the choices a person makes with the opportunities they get, but the execution and storyline are a bit convoluted at times. 

Occult elements- Lots of freemasonic symbols and scenarios, deals with the devil.

The Wicker Man (1973)

This is a film about sacrifice. Mostly the human kind. Sir Christopher Lee is a leader of a group of neopagans that are under suspicion after people become uncooperative in a disappearance investigation. There is a lot of 1970s style folk singing and neopagan stuff presented as being ancient, like most neopagan stuff. Oh, also, don’t watch the Nick Cage remake unless you want the bees.

Occult elements- Neopaganism, May Poles, fire jumping, baccian rituals, human sacrifice.

Season of the Witch (1972)

This movie is seriously some hilarious Shirley MacLaine meets the first few rounds of private practitioner wicca books kinda shit. It’s kind like a fictionalized documentary of how housewives in the 1970s got into witchcraft. Also, the Donovan song of the same title is in the movie.

Occult elements- Lots of really silly neowicca and satanism as the hardcore practice.

So, that’s all I got for you right now, I’ll add to this as I remember things I forgot.

Reblogging for those that haven’t seen this yet and also because lack of OC right now.

I don’t have a computer or a phone.

So, that’s why I haven’t been on here at all. I’d really like to do some readings this weekend so obviously I’m going to need something that connects to the internet unless y’all wanna meet me on the astral.
In other news if anyone has an old smart phone or computer laying around hit me up.

aleistermeowley:

Sin is defined as Restriction: that is; the setting of limits, or the desire to set limits, to any thing that is, seeing that as above set forth the true Nature of all things is to fulfil themselves in all Ways. Yet though all things be thus lawful in themselves, it is often Restriction to act, and Freedom to refrain. For that Freedom is worth the other, and each case must be judged by its own Nature.

hecate william blake 1875, ~Hecate is a complex work that draws together allusions from Greek mythology, several of Shakespeare’s plays, and Blake’s own poetry. The three figures represent the tripartite nature of the goddess who in Greek mythology combined in her person aspects of the moon, earth and underworld, with power over the sky, earth and sea; she was also associated with witchcraft, magic and the supernatural.~

I’ve been shitty sick all day but I’m starting to feel better. I wish my guts weren’t so mad at the world sometimes.
Anyway, probably gunna do some Tarot on here tomorrow night.

Just curious OP, why you tagged this with “cult”?

Otherwise… man i wish I had these. The book can be bought on Amazon but to have these bound like this would be an honor.

Book porn.
