I have grown. I think.

I think I just accomplished one of the great tasks of humanity.

Yes. I just watched Zardoz.

Thanks to the generosity of thornyc (from almost a year ago!) I finally sat down and watched this cult-fave movie. And... WOW.

I mean... WOW.

I loved it.

I'm just afraid I might get shot for saying that.

I want to spread the joys of Zardoz to everyone. I want to start a new religion, and I will call it Zardoz.

I want that head. I want an action figure series from Zardoz, and it must include that head.

I now have the perfect one-two punch for the most surreal movie night ever, and I own both movies. Zardoz, and the porn musical version of Alice in Wonderland.

Enter my apartment... at your own risk.

(For those not in the know, check the IMDB profile linked above. For those IN the know, read the most hysterical movie review I have ever read here.)

((For those who need another reason to watch, if you ever wanted to know where in his ass Quentin Tarantino pulled the name Zed from for Pulp Fiction, it's from this movie.))

Have you ever seen Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!? You must. Really, you must.

I haven't watched either Faster Pussycat nor Death Proof. But I have Death Proof on DVD... which should I watch first?

Hmmm... I saw Death Proof first. It could go either way, but I guess I'd recommend Pussycat first. It's frankly more pleasurable, and it'll give you a sharper eye for what Quentin did there.

Oh. dear. lord.

But will the food short be in there as well?

I think Zardoz replaces the food short in terms of surreality.

You have a musical porn version of Alice in Wonderland?

I can't decide if I'm curious or horrified :)

It's faaaaaaaaaabulous.

But Alice in Wonderland is a very scary story.

Who know Zoroaster could be such fun? Going to join the Parsis?

I have Zardoz near the top of my list of wtf films, and thus own it. However, for continued what the fuckness, I highly recommend "Santa Sangre":
Any movie with a funeral parade for an elephant, armless women, knife throwers and catholic cults must be worth an hour or two of "huh".

Then you will understand why it is taking self-control to not buy this:

is it the actual mask (IE can you wear it), or not (IE you just can hang it on a wall)? It is very... wacky. Love it.

I think it is meant to be hung.

Almost tempting. But the price reduces the novelty just over the tipping line.

Was aware of this movie back in the 80s having seen some portion of it, but haven't sat down to watch this one in it's entirety. Nice to see that in the wonders of the modern age, there are still a few pleasent surprises to be discovered from time to time.

Ahh, the memories from film school that brings back...

porn musical version of Alice in Wonderland???

*laughs* gotta see this...

Charlotte Rampling is in it!!!! That alone makes it watchable.
