Zardoz (1974, UK / USA / Ireland) Review

Zardoz (1974, UK / USA / Ireland) Review

Director John Boorman’s cerebral and eerily dystopian sci-fi tale Zardoz was released in 1974, not long after Boorman’s iconic Deliverance, and saw the director team up with Sean Connery, three years after his final official appearance as James Bond and light years away from anything either had done before.

In a post-apocalyptic 2293, Zardoz, a colossal stone head, floats over desolate plains, pausing to receive grain from masked horsemen, vomiting weapons as payment from its grimacing mouth.

“Beyond 1984, Beyond 2001, Beyond Love, Beyond Death.”

“One Life for Yourself, and One for Your Dreams.” In Memory of Sean Connery

"One Life for Yourself, and One for Your Dreams." In Memory of Sean Connery (25 August 1930 - 31 October 2020)

Friends, Britons and fellow James Bond fans, lend me your eyes – I come to praise Sean Connery, not to bury him. One of the last few movie stars left over from the dying days of the studio system, and arguably the most famous British actor of his, or any, generation, Connery embodied the old Hollywood male lead aesthetic better than most of his contemporaries.

“I must be dreaming.”
