Wyrd War presents a 35mm print of this futuristic dystopian classic!
ROLLERBALL (1975): The year is 2018. There are no
wars. There is no crime. There is only...The Game. Acclaimed Canadian
director Norman Jewison’s science-fiction masterpiece ROLLERBALL is an
ambitious, sprawling, and ultra-violent meditation on the barrel chested
Individual’s struggle against multinational corporate control...on
roller skates! Seemed totally plausible to stoned audiences in the
1970s, and survives today as the most aesthetically bewildering future
nightmare since A CLOCKWORK ORANGE for contemporary audiences courageous
enough to strap on their helmets for a very bumpy ride. Starring James
Caan (THE GODFATHER), Maud Adams (OCTOPUSSY), John Houseman (THE
PAPERCHASE), Moses Gunn (SHAFT, ROOTS) and Sir Ralph Richardson (THE
HEIRESS), and boasting an incredibly bombastic score conducted by Andre
Previn, ROLLERBALL must be experienced on the big screen for maximum
impact! In case you haven’t been paying attention, the
not-too-distant-future dystopia is…NOW!
