Living for the Weekend


Update: My lord, this is a ridiculous movie. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but a sci-fi version of Hair with macrame-brassiered psychics groaning out meditations on mortality, um, wasn't it. Despite being an amazing failure at basically everything, the movie makes me very sad for there's no way that anything like it would be put out by 20th Century Fox today.

I was flipping through the channels here, and I came to the Fox Movie Channel. Zardoz was playing at the time. I just sat and watched it for a half hour, mesmerized by the sheer bizarrness of the whole thing.

I've created a new term: "The Zardoz Effect" -- when you feel compelled to watch something inexplicably weird solely because you want to figure out what the hell's going on. Like why Sean Connery is running around wearing nothing but a red speedo and a bandolier. Or why topless chicks are riding around on horses.

What explaination would one need for an almost nude Sean Connery?

Seriously. If and when I see topless ladies on horseback cantoring down Guerrero ST., I'm not looking for explanations. I'm just going to assume that the Rapture has occurred.

How much better to see it on a great big projector screen...
Rapture of that kind should be huge!
