“The gun is good… The penis is evil. The penis shoots seeds, and makes new life, and poisons the earth with a plague of men, as once it was. But the gun shoots death, and purifies the earth of the filth of brutals. Go forth and kill!”
That little gem above was spoken by the flying stone head who delivers guns and grain to the exterminators in the 1974 classic Zardoz starring Sean Connery. Sean Connery plays a “Brutal” who is introduced to a utopian socialist future inhabited by the members of the next stage of human evolution, known as elementals. Elementals cannot die, their body’s are simply replaced (Chronic Inmortality?). Elementals who refuse to conform are punished with senility. Sean Connery has sex with all the women and break the system. Exciting no? It’s clear Zardoz did not age well, but still worth seeing when inebriated.
Zardoz is an excellent reminder that dystopia is utopia forced upon you by a madman.
