Making its Blu-ray debut from Twilight Time, writer/director John Boorman’s (Excalibur) fabulously bizarre Zardoz (1974) is a visually stunning science fiction/fantasy fable.

Sean Connery is Zed in Zardoz.

Sean Connery is Zed in Zardoz.

The movie stars Sean Connery (Meteor) as the spanner in the works of a dreamily languid future society. A primitive Adam armed with a gun and active libido, Connery’s Zed charges like a bull through the china shop of a civilization from which all signs of lusty humanity have been drained.

Co-starring Charlotte Rampling (The Night Porter), and featuring spectacular production design by Anthony Pratt and stunning cinematography by Geoffrey Unsworth, Zardoz remains one of the Seventies’ most offbeat and downright weird future-shockers.

Special features on the Xardoz Blu-ray include the following:
-Isolated score track
-Audio commentary with director John Boorman
-Audio commentary with film historians Jeff Bond, Joe Fordham and Nick Redman
-Radio spots
-Original theatrical trailer
