Zardoz (1974) (part 10 of 15)
We next find Topless Chick, naturally topless again, standing with Z-Dawg among some plants inside a plastic baggie. She rubs leaves on his eyes and says this will help him see “more and deeper than you ever saw before!” When you’re watching a movie like this one, that’s not necessarily a good thing.
Z-Dawg tells her, completely from out of nowhere, “I’ve seen men rape an old crippled woman in a wet ditch.” This, by the way, is not an effective pickup line. He looks at her, and she backs off, because she’s now realized that he’s “the One. The Liberator!” Yeah, anyone who didn’t think there was gonna be some kind of Christ motif in this movie, raise your hands. Okay, everyone who raised their hands, go home. Have any of you ever seen a pretentious movie before?
