Sean Connery in a thong would indicate that this is purely a campy mess, but beyond the weird costumes and sets is a serious sci-fi that almost borders on genius. In a crazy future, the privileged class lives in ideal habitats called Vortices where they achieve immortality. Some become so detached and apathetic in their interminable lives that they are called the Apathetics and literally do nothing. Meanwhile, outside in the brutal Outlands, there are giant floating heads that give guns to Exterminators, like the super-smart, over-sexed and angry Zed. And then it gets weird, plus Charlotte Rampling classes it up a bit. (John Boorman, 1974, Ireland, 1:45, R)
