Zardoz (1974) (part 14 of 15)

This segment goes on forever, as we continue to see projected images of all the Eternals doing interpretive dance, with moans and shrieks all around. We hear a woman’s voice say, “Afraid?” No, not at all, but thanks for asking. Some of the images, by the way, are now getting that wavy effect like when they used to flashback to stuff on The Jeffersons.

Z-Dawg continues to run around, coming to mirrors, and viewscreens, and mirrors, and viewscreens, before finally getting fed up and shooting his gun. This appears to have no effect. Regardless, we hear the Mormon Tabernacle Choir say, “You have destroyed us.” Um, okay. If you say so. You’re the Tabernacle, so I guess you should know, but I didn’t think it would be so easy. I guess all it took to destroy the Tabernacle was running around in a hall of mirrors confused for several minutes, and then shooting in a random direction. Who knew?

“You have found the flaw in the crystal,” the voice says, as we see Z-Dawg bouncing from mirror to mirror, with all the projected images and sounds suddenly gone. “We are gone,” the Tabernacle says. “You are alone.” So Z-Dawg starts shooting his gun a few more times, I guess out of boredom, and he continues running around as we hear his grunts and moans and screams echoing like crazy. Hello hello hello! Echo echo echo!
