Capital Celluloid - Day 89: Thursday Mar 31, 2011

Zardoz (Boorman, 1973): ICA Cinema, 8.30pm

One of those movies which always got a terrific write up in Time Out and which I never got round to seeing. It's a sci-fi film set in a post-apocalyptic world starring Sean Connery and is sure to look amazing as it's directed by John Boorman, who was working at the height of his powers in the early 70s. Jonathan Rosenbaum describes it here as the director's most underrated film. Boorman was responsible for the brilliant Point Blank and this movie has always appeared very intriguing.

Here is the trailer.

The ICA, by the way, have a number of excellent screenings lined up in April. Watch this space.
