This Stars Mr. Richard Burton as a sadistically driven maniac intent on devouring the human
spirit displayed by John Hurt's character with cruelty which boggles the mind.
Although looking like a survivor in the aftermath of it all, it is unlikely that his human
sanity could possibly have survived in any meaningful way given the totality of
the experiences inflicted on the population in this futuristic "Orwellian" society
hell bent on oppressing and retarding the human spirit through demonic levels
of mind control and deception combined with totalitarian oppression of the spirit.
I have no doubt that a good many people live with such fantasies of destroying
the sanity of men to satisfy evil needs of alien spirits to those who remain truly
loyal to the cause of true notions of Human idealism and Humanistic beauty
in our midst.
