In honor of the retrospective of John Boorman’s work at the Film Forum (Feb 11th-17th) we recorded our second commentary episode while watching Boorman’s truly strange and offbeat post-apocalyptic adventure film “Zardoz” (1974). Starring Sean Connery and Charlotte Rampling in a film often described as the best bad movie ever made, we try and determine for ourselves if this is a misunderstood classic deserving of rediscovery.
