-Heh, I'm now realizing 2001 was the same year as f***ing Chariots Of The Gods no?
You ever read any of those crazy 70s UFO cult books? How about Rael, you ever read him? I almost read something by him once on a lark but I didn't.
"Zardoz collapses under the weight of a thousand Ace Books paperbacks. No matter how far out Boorman’s concepts fly, all we see is James Bond gone long-haired and clothed in a red diaper."
Hahah, yes, that film has the worst costumes ever.
"Connery here is as campy as can be, uncomfortable down to his handlebar mustache with Boorman’s flying freak-flag and a role that asks little of him beyond transmitting his hairy-chested musk through a movie screen".
I've always sort of wondered about Connery. I've heard he was sort of a dumbass who accidentally stumbled into being a big movie star, but who knows.
"It’s a bad film, but watchable enough to survive the decades as a wild cult favorite and a prime example of a director using his clout after making a hit (Boorman’s Deliverance) to produce something totally off-the-wall."
Ahhh, that's right. I didn't stop to think that Boorman got a huge budget and went nuts after making a hit.
