A lot of times you’ll see movies that a look a lot like all too many other movies you’ve seen before. Odd-couple buddy cops, one last heist, boy meets girl who hates him at first, the “chosen one” heroic quest, band of dysfunctional misfits who learn to pull together and triumph . . .
Every now and then, though, along comes a film that resembles nothing, an entirely singular work of inspiration. One such movie, on revival this month, is Alejandro Jodorowsky’s “El Topo” (“The Mole”), the cult classic from 1970 that was pulled from distribution for decades.
