I've seen Hu-Man 30 years ago, made a great impression on me
I give 9 out of 10 because I'm not sure the film has stand it through the years. Otherwise, in my memory, it's one my real favorite one. I remember that I was like hypnotized by this movie. It was also this film that made me adore Terence Stamp (he is so great in "the Hit" from Stephen Frears, another cult-movie for me). Some scenes are still alive in my mind. Especially when the whole world "prayes" to help the hero fly away through mind-force. It's a SF story but with a very particular mood. Calm, strange, soft, very bright lights. It's one of these movies that I really would like to see again (like "Brewster McCloud" or "Themroc" that i long to see again ). The story has something in common with "Zardoz" from John Boorman. This play with time, eternity, things happening softly, with no stress, no running, and so much weirdness. I also remember the music was aerial. I don't know if this movie is existing somewhere, if it can be seen or bought but I'd like to.
