Zardoz movie scene

2017 OMSI Sci Fi Film Fest Selection

In the future, 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. However, Zed  a Brutal warrior, challenges that assumption when he enters the Zardoz monument and is captured by an Eternal. There, he learns the truth about the Eternals and the false god that rules society.


Sean Connery and Charlotte Rampling star in writer-director John Boorman's bizarre but visually stunning science fiction/fantasy fable.  The 1974 release was only Connery's second film post his first turn as James Bond, and critics were divided as to both his performance and the film in general. Most thought it a self-indulgent jumble, although Roger Ebert gave it a moderately postive grade calling it  "a genuinely quirky movie, a trip into a future that seems ruled by perpetually stoned set decorators."
