Dir Norman Jewison. 1975.
“In the not too distant future, wars will no longer exist but there will be… Rollerball”.
70s paranoia, sci-fi dystopia a go-go! It’s one man against the state, and what a state it’s in!
Nations no longer exist, only mega corporations that rule the planet, each selling a service to the world that the population cannot live without. Not only that everyone’s hooked on two things; pills and a sport so violent it makes a night out in the Camberwell Billiards Club look like Jackanory presented by the Care Bears and Mother Theresa.
Jimmy Caan, Maud Adams,John Houseman and Ralph Richardson star in this wonderfully weirdo-rama, fear the future, fight to the finish fiasco.
