Sean Connery felt he was being type-cast as secret agent James Bond. So to break that image he took on all sorts of crazy roles, including this one in ZARDOZ. I gotta say, there are probably easier and better ways to shake the Bond ghost (like smashing your own face in). But here we have Sean anyway and a whole bunch of weird hippies who have taken control of the last of Earth's resources (think bourgeoisie to the extreme). They grow food (and bodies) in plastic balls and essentially live forever. That is, until Connery's fellow band of outcasts massacre the entire commune. This movie is absolutely insane with unexpected violence and sexuality. It also features a giant stone head which vomits rifles and warns against the evils of the male reproductive organ.
