4 stars

An underrated futuristic social satire that is certainly quite self-indulgent but also more thought-provoking and smart than it appears to be. The mind-blowing visuals and the bizarre dialogue contribute to give shape to a surrealistic allegory that is both fascinating and original.

An "outlander" mortal killer stows away inside a flying head to reach "the vortex," a land of bored immortals who view him as either a threat, a curiosity, or a savior. The crazy mix of high camp (Sean Connery running around in a red diaper), serious speculative sci-fi and budget psychedelic effects could only have been made in the 1970s; it's a highly entertaining cult movie time capsule.
