Zardoz (1974) (part 7 of 15)
Alrighty then. Now that John Boorman’s teenage sexual fantasies are out of the way, it’s back to tedium. We cut to the head of an eagle [?] and see a couple of llamas staring at each other, and one of them yawns [!].
Z-Dawg is asleep, and despite all his rage, he is still just a rat in a cage. Connie comes along and paces in front of Z-Dawg’s cage and talks into her mood ring. She’s amazed at how he’s been asleep for hours, calling it a “vulnerable condition”. So, these rings, I guess they take dictation, too?
She asks the ring for information on the “sleeping patterns of primitive people” and makes it a “priority request”. Then she tells the ring that she’s going to “test its waking response to danger stimuli.” Stimuli? In this movie? Not likely.
