Wizard bloke. Some people should be made king of the universe, Mr Lydon is one of them. Shame his message has never been really understood?

Could/should have been a classic but ended up a B-movie that few probably know about? Not easy to put your finger on why it doesn’t work exactly? Decent script, good actors, fantastic scenery/locations, dialogue somewhat predictable for this genre but perfectly okay, music is the usual grand fare [with one slightly out of place modern Then Jericho track], but the editing seems a little strange so perhaps there is missing footage?

Certainly could have been a Mad Max type hit. Instead, although only made in 1989, the film is already in the public domain. It would work very well as a graphic novel or even a novel if the story was extended? And definitely room for other world building tales.

I recently purchased a copy of the film so something about it has stuck in my head for the last 25 years.

There is probably a neologism in the English dictionary to describe the ‘I’m Feeling Lucky’ random search method? And the happy coincidence results that often pop up. I call it ‘chance accumulation by way of greedy eye’. In some ways a relation to the Kevin Bacon six degrees of separation game? Or the Douglas Adams’ detective Dirk Gently’s ‘fundamental interconnectedness of everything’ notion.

I am now acquainted with the music of Dimbodius after entering the search term ‘Sisyphus running’ [don’t ask] and being presented with, amongst many other things, some interesting illustrations from his album covers. Whoever said Sisyphus’ bolder had to be rounded? To make it a real punishment it almost certainly would not have been; boulders other than round can roll down hill after all.
