Zardoz (1974)

Zardoz (1974)-* * *

Directed By: John Boorman

Starring: Sean Connery and Charlotte Rampling
















Zardoz is a classic sci-fi film. Zed (Connery) finds himself fighting off horny women on a lost planet. He also has to figure the mystery of Zardoz. It's a big rock head.



The whole movie is a lot of fun: The ridiculous plot, "terrible" sets, and a silly performance from Connery. The special effects are good for their time though.

There's something fascinating and inscrutable about Zardoz, from the
title on down. Only in the 70's could a movie like this be made. Thank
goodness for those times, or gems like this would never see the light
of day. Don't ignore Zardoz.

Hey! You were pretty hard on Zardoz. This movie has a lot of atmosphere, and it's a very interesting story.

I have been having 'Zardoz' on my to-see list for years, and I never seem to finally pick up the film and watch it! I will, I promise... someday.

It is well-worth it and they don't make movies like that anymore! Sean Connery at his weirdest!
