#AtoZChallenge : Zardoz and The End!

Zardoz is a most oddly bizzare and yet compelling movie, especially if you ain't quite normal anyways!

Wikipedia describes this film as follows:

"In the year AD 2293, a post-apocalyptic Earth is inhabited mostly by the Brutals, who are ruled by the Eternals. Eternals use other Brutals, called Exterminators, as the Chosen warrior class. The Exterminators worship the god Zardoz, a huge, flying, hollow stone head.
The Zardoz god head supplies the Exterminators with weapons, while the Exterminators supply it with grain. Zed (Sean Connery), an Exterminator, hides himself within Zardoz for an initially unknown purpose. He shoots and apparently kills its pilot, Arthur Frayn (Niall Buggy), who has already identified himself as an Eternal in the story's prologue. The stone head containing Zed returns to the Vortex, a secluded community of civilized beings, protected all around by an invisible force-field, where the immortal Eternals lead a pleasant but ultimately stifling existence."

It seems that this was one of the first films Sean Connery did following his time as James Bond.

REALLY Sean? This is what you left James Bond for???

Here's the trailor for Zardoz, in case you haven't suffered enough. And in case you're wondering, Zardoz is a shortened variation on the Wizard of Oz title. Must be because of the big stone head! Go figure

And now, April is over and so is the challenge.
