One could say that Zed's outfit is loosely based upon that of Arhur from Ghosts N' Goblins.

I remember catching parts of this one late night with nothing else to do. I haven't been this confused since I walked in on my dad watching Heavy Metal when I was 5, and he let me watch it with him.

Personally, I always wanted to find a shot of one of the pics from the back of the DVD case for this one. It shows Zed staring *intently* into a crystal ball and there's this woman behind him holding up a knife by which I do believe she means to stab him lots. I just always found it hilarious. I just couldn't ever *find* it outside of the DVD case.

UPDATE: I have just watched this film and never before in my life have I witnessed something so mind-blowingly bizarre as this piece of cinema.

I actually sort of "get" Zardoz. Call it sci-fi fantasy overload or something but with all the weirdness I've read this sorta makes some sense. Also, in the commmentary the director mentions that a lot got cut and that their budget fell through during filming. Imaging what Zardoz COULD have been. Also, why wasn't the explanation of Zardoz's name in the list?

I didn't put the name origin bit in because it was part of a spoiler moment.

You should have at least posted the trailer for the movie so people could see some of this awesome movie. I love this movie and have subjected numerous friends (and a few enemies) to this movie. I also just picked up the book (written by the director, John Boorman) for .50 cents at a used book store. It even has pictures of the movie in the middle of the paperback. I suggest that anyone who is interested in this movie first go to youtube and watch the trailer. Love the fact that you reviewed this. Thanks.

I watched this movie about a year ago and can't remember anything about it at all. I guess my mind has blocked it out.

I love the review of "Book of Eli" on Io9 that suggested it was actually a remake of Zardoz. I have never seen either movie but I like to dream it is actually true.
