heres what wikipedia has to say about it.
Simon of the Desert is a 1965 film directed by Luis Buñel.
It is loosely based on the story of the ascetic 5th-century Syrian saint Simeon Stylites
who lived for 39 years on top of a column.
maybe im a crazy person but id actually love to see a movie about a dude who spent 39 years on top of a column.
fortunately for all of us it’s only 42 minutes long.
maybe he fell off.
