Here’s a sneaky reblog from vintage Film Grimoire on one of the strangest films to exist – Zardoz (1974), that one film where Sean Connery is half-naked most of the time. A very singular experience of a film that I’ve been meaning to re-watch for a long time!
One of the worst films of all time? Maybe. John Boorman’s Zardoz (1974) ponders the ethics of technological and societal advancement. Zed (Sean Connery) is a savage warrior whose society is bred for the purpose of killing. When Zed hides within a giant flying stone head (?), he mingles with a technologically and psychologically advanced immortal social caste (??) who choose to keep him alive in order to study him (????!). What happens throughout the film is such an intensely strange experience that I really think any description I can manage simply won’t be good enough.
