On the Difficulty of Zardoz

Zardoz is a pretty badass alchemical film experiment but it's definitely not for everybody. if taken seriously it's quite disturbing, but if taken lightly isn't really watchable (unless you enjoy the colors, the psychedelic and SF head trips and the lovely lovely Ludwig Van--in which case you needn't even pay attention!). Zardoz is a major problem film that has been sorely neglected in the theory literature. up there with jodorowski's holy mountain, Cronenberg's videodrome in the weird fucked up movies that eat themselves category. I wouldn't wish them on my worst enemy, although they're some of the only films that interest me enough to write seriously about. But surely they're just as worth our time as the latest high budget mindfuck simulacrum?
