John Boorman

Zardoz

Flamboyant, futuristic cautionary tale starring Sean Connery.

UK 1973
Directed by John Boorman
With Sean Connery, Charlotte Rampling, Sara Kestelman
Running time 105 min
15

Set in 2293, where a self-contained world is peopled with the Brutes, the Exterminators and the Eternals. Zardoz is a dystopia, a pessimistic view of a possible future, and a cautionary tale coloured by Boorman’s concern for the evolution of humanity. Shot – like Excalibur, The General and The Tiger’s Tail – near his house in Wicklow, it is the most baroque of all his films, where he gives free rein to his imagination in flamboyant hues, and features Sean Connery as the embodiment of a life force.
