Watch: Zardoz 1974 123movies, Full Movie Online – 2293. Zardoz, an unseen “God” who speaks through an idol, a large stone statue of a head, leads a barbaric race called the Brutals, who live a harsh existence in the Outlands. Zardoz tells the Brutals that once they die, they will be transported to the Vortex, where they will live happily as immortals. He has armed a small group, the Exterminators, with guns, as Zardoz’s philosophy is that killing is good, and procreation is the root of all that is bad. In reality, Zardoz is Arthur Frayn, from a competing, more advanced race, called “the Eternals”, who live in paradise in the Vortex. The Eternals truly are immortal as they do not age and their bodies undergo reconstruction if they “die”. As such, they truly do not believe in procreation as their society has reached perfect equilibrium. Past human acts such as sex and sleep are obsolete in their advanced state. All major decisions are achieved through pure democracy. The Eternals, however, are not immune to non life threatening disease or sin, the latter which is punishable by aging, only making their life less pleasant, but not ever killing them. Arthur’s mission as Zardoz is to control, monitor, and study the Brutals for the Eternals. Being in the Outlands, Arthur is isolated without communication back to the Vortex and the Eternals. In his work as an Exterminator, Zed, by accident, is able to find his way to the Vortex as a still alive being. The Eternals vote to keep Zed alive temporarily so that they can study him before they kill him. Amongst the Eternals who have direct interactions with Zed are: May, the lead scientist, who believes Zed is a blessing in that they have not had access to a Brutal in some time; Friend, a hedonist who wants to use Zed as the animal he considers him to be; and Consuela, the hard lined one who believes in vigilante justice. In the Eternals’ access to Zed, they may learn if he making it to the Vortex was indeed an accident. In addition, their so-called Utopian society may be exposed for what it truly is..
Plot: In the far future, a savage trained only to kill finds a way into the community of bored immortals that alone preserves humanity’s achievements.

good film-making
it seems like most folks who view this see only cheese. i don’t get that; there are definitely moments that qualify, but i don’t think any of them are unjustified by the plot and premises. if they seem cheesy, that’s really what we bring to it, not an intrinsic fault. if you have ever enjoyed a modern dance performance, you can handle this without sniggering; if the words ‘modern dance’ transform you into beavis, well, then you won’t get the most out of the movie.

look at how the story gets told here-there’s some really good film-making going on. it jumps all over in time and still makes sense. the various reveals really do expand what the movie is about, rather than just constituting tricks on the viewer. the futuristic tech holds up better than just about anything else imagined in that era that i’ve seen. the special effects are simple yet effective and certainly not cheesy in technique (as distinct from content). there’s a whole lot more here to think about than most films. i don’t happen to agree, quite, with boorman’s macho ideology positing how violence and death are essential to renewal, though he’s hardly alone on that point, and i disagree with his narrow gender interpretation of the necessity and inevitability of the attraction of ‘opposites’. but unlike most sci fi, which is basically spaghetti western in spandex, this film makes a real effort to imagine a different world, the circumstances of which reflect and inform our own, but are not mere caricature of our own.

it’s true, you probably shouldn’t see this when you’re really sleepy–the pacing isn’t the usual stuff (perhaps it is meant to evoke the mood of immortality), and yes, most of us will find ourselves shaking our heads and groaning a few times. but it is really worth it. it is a kind of movie making a sincere attempt at serious subjects that you hardly see anymore. it is a great reprieve from all the winking, hip flicks you see these days which hide behind their too-cool- to-care attitudes.

A Cult Sci-Fi Movie From the 70’s
In 2223, Zed (Sean Connery) is a kind of priest of a new religion: he terminates with the brutals. This ‘new religion’ of admirers of Zardoz controls the society simply killing the so-called ‘brutals’. The confused plot is presented in flashbacks, so any comment may be a spoiler. Therefore, it is better off not make additional comments. Watching Zardoz in 2003 sounds strange. This low budget B-movie was made 1974, when the world has the ‘Peace and Love’ generation, the remake of ‘Lost Horizon’ one year before, ‘Logan’s Run’ two years later and ‘Hair’ some five years later. In 2003, Zardoz is aged, but twenty-nine years ago it was a cult movie in close touch with the pop culture of that moment. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): “Zardoz”

Note: On 15 February 2021, I saw this film again.
