PRAISE BE TO ZARDOZ!
Between the Hollywood productions of Deliverance and Exorcist II: The Heretic, John Boorman embarked on one of the strangest films ever to come from a major studio.
The year is 2293. Society as we know it has broken down centuries ago with the Earth s population split into three classes: the Brutals, who work the land and are forbidden from reproducing; their overseers, the Executioners; and the highly civilised Eternals, who are protected from the outside world by a force-field. But when an Executioner, Zed (Sean Connery, light years from James Bond), smuggles himself into their isolated paradise, he risks unbalancing the system and threatening the status quo...
Photographed by Geoffrey Unsworth (2001: A Space Odyssey) and designed by Anthony Pratt (Excalibur), dystopian science-fiction has rarely looked so beautiful or been so odd as it appears in Zardoz.

I can see why it bombed at the box office, a very strange and indulgent film by the director Boorman, odd casting and budget special effects. John Alderton in a very strange role
I would recommend a purchase and viewing, it's baffling but cosy too, the reference to the Wizard of Oz being predictable
Must say after watching it on copious amounts of Vodka it got better than when sober!
Not a film to watch with your mother in law!
A unique, unusual, interestingly complex film about the problems of immortality set in the year 2293 AD. You might need to watch it a 2nd time to get a deeper fuller understanding of it. A good film to watch.
