Zardoz (1974)

Starring:  Sean Connery, Charlotte Rampling, Sara Kestelman

Directed By:  John Boorman

The Plot:  In the far future, a savage trained only to kill finds a way into the community of bored immortals that alone preserves humanity’s achievements.

Comments:  Sean Connery in a man-kini is what everyone remembers. Apart from that it is an absurd, experimental-ish, psychedelic sci-fi epic. It tries to be so many different things that it kind of falls apart, but at least it’s entertaining and cool to look at. I watched this with Romanian subtitles, which was also interesting.
