This is a beautiful set, it contains Holy Mountain, El Topo, Fando Y Lis and a short film by Alejandro. It also contains two soundtrack CD's, one for Holy Mountain and one for El Topo as well as some great documentaries. Holy Mountain and El Topo both come with deleted scenes and feature-length commentary; there are also some beautiful art cards included in the box. The only thing this set is missing is Santa Sangre. It's a shame because Santa Sangre is a masterpiece; I assume Tartan couldn't get the rights to it, or some other legal matter prevented it from being included.
So basically this set is essential to any fan of Jodorowsky, but the lack of Santa Sangre makes it feel somewhat incomplete. There is a region free version of Santa Sangre available from Severin Films, should you wish to complete the great Jodorowsky Quadrilogy. It should also be noted that Fando Y Lis was thought to be lost for 30 years and was only recently (relative to the set's release) discovered and added to the boxset.
