Capital Celluloid 2013 - Day 93: Wed Apr 3

Zardoz (Boorman, 1974): BFI Southbank, NFT2, 8.40pm

Chicago Reader review:
'Probably John Boorman's most underrated film—an impossibly ambitious and pretentious but also highly inventive, provocative, and visually striking SF adventure with metaphysical trimmings (1974). Set in a postapocalyptic society in 2293, it stars Sean Connery as a warrior and noble savage with dawning awareness; interestingly enough, the plot in many ways resembles that of Boorman's best film, Point Blank.'Jonathan Rosenabum

Here is the trailer.
