Series: Wyrd War Presents!
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!
