"At first I was thinking that it was one of those movies I should be stoned to appreciate, and then it sunk in that I was getting stoned just watching it."
— P. Z. Myers, Pharyngula
"John Boorman’s Zardoz is a genuinely quirky movie, a trip into a future that seems ruled by perpetually stoned set decorators. ... The movie is an exercise in self-indulgence (if often an interesting one) by Boorman, who more or less had carte blanche to do a personal project after his immensely successful Deliverance."
"Get ready for Zardoz, the only movie that manages to be both unbearably tedious and completely fucking insane all at the same time!"
