This and The Rainbow Thief are the two films that are always mentioned as Jodorowsky duds. While I agree that neither of them have anything close to what you can see in his masterpieces (I like Holy Mountain the best, and it's definitely the weirdest one, although Santa Sangre might objectively be considered his "best" film)I feel that both are still worth watching, because they are still Jodorowsky films even if everything is a bit diluted from what it could have been. What can be said in favor of this elephant "panic fable"? Tusk still contains some of the bizarre energy that marks J's work, and has some very odd music throughout. The strangest scene is a trippy day-for-night chase and elephant vs. elephant battle, complete with crazy 70's synthesizer rock a la Styx(!) Only for a Jodorowsky completist, perhaps, but we are quite the bunch.
