The future. A violent people ride around on horseback wearing nappies, worshipping a flying stone head that spews out guns so that they can be in charge of birth control for the rest of the population. But one day, one of the exterminators hides away in the head and goes on an existential magical mystery tour, back to where the head lives.
Super sci fi from the 70s, with Sean Connery running around with a pony tail, in a nappy, trying to look tough. The British cast are really good. The effects are all kaliedoscopic and trippy and although its a bit pretentious, the story is solid enough, with enough cool ideas and twists to keep the viewer interested up to the climax. Charlotte Rampling is always a joy and theres more two faced mad men, wearing nappies in this than your average tory after dark soho party..!
It has been said that this is a love/hate movie, all i would say, is that if you like science fantasy films, then you'll find a lot in this of merit, as its probably never received the credit it really deserves.
4.5/5 stars, as always, rounded up.
The UK dvd is lacking in extras. A nice bluray anyone?
