Directed by John Boorman (UK/USA, 1974, 105 min.). Digital.

Whisper “Zardoz” in the ear of any cult film fan and you’ll conjure a vision of Sean Connery in a speedo and suspenders, wielding an emasculatingly tiny gun. And while the film does serve up plenty of half-naked Connery and a staggering dose of camp, it also offers some timely commentary on the lies manufactured by those in power to subjugate the masses.

Set in Ireland in the year 2293, Zardoz shows us a future in which Earth is ruled by Eternals, an advanced and secret sect of beings who reign over a savage group called Brutals. The Eternals have created a god named Zardoz to intimidate the Brutals, making them believe that killing is their natural state. When a scantily clad warrior named Zed (Connery) enters the Zardoz monument and is captured by an Eternal (Charlotte Rampling), he learns the truth about the Eternals and their false god.
