Trivia

Record producer Mickie Most originally conceived this as a vehicle for Paul McCartney in the role of Clavius, but he was offered the role during the time of the break-up of The Beatles in 1970 and declined it. When Most met up with McCartney he later described him as "looking a bit like Jim Morrison after a bender". See more »

Better Than Expected. Better Than Leonard Maltin Said It Was.
13 April 2005 | by See all my reviews

I didn't even want to watch this movie after reading Maltin's review and 1 1/2 star rating. I watched it anyway on the advice of my son and found it much better than I expected. I would give it 2 1/2 stars out of a 4 star system. You have to watch the movie more than once to understand it all. If you don't know much about religion, you will miss a lot. I graduated from high school the year the movie was made, so maybe I can relate to it better. Yes, there is some pretension in the movie and it's weird to some extent, but that was the 70s so what do you expect. I can see why people might not like the movie; however, I cannot understand people saying it is boring. The movie is anything but boring. You will either hate it or love it. If you find it boring, you are probably brain dead.
