Classics of Crap Volume 29: Zardoz

Let's say you're director John Boorman. You've just directed Deliverance, which was a big hit, and the studio says, go ahead, John. Do whatever you want for your next movie, knock yourself out. I can only imagine what the studio executives faces must have looked like when they were delivered the steaming pile of celluloid known as Zardoz. This is just speculation, but the cast and crew of this movie had to be totally smashed on something when they made this movie. How else can you explain a giant stone head criticizing penises and spewing out guns, and James Bond himself, Sean Connery prancing around in a bright red diaper. (The sad thing is, that the diaper isn't even the most unflattering outfit Sean wears in the movie. That honor belongs to a dirty wedding dress, but the less said about that, the better). I don't know even know where to begin with this movie. It's totally mental, and is absolutely hilarious.

Words cannot begin to describe Jeff. I had to share this with some friends... We frequently joke about that outfit, and that film.

You've do done something awesome here, and I thank you...
