dir. Roger Vadim, US/France/Italy, 1968, HD, 98 min.

French director Roger Vadim’s science-fiction comic-strip adaptation Barbarella positions Jane Fonda as a sexy, interstellar super-heroine who is searching for Dr. Durand Durand in a remote region of space. While the film was a critical and box office failure it is now widely considered a cult classic. Fonda, who was married to director Vadim at the time, vacillates between liberated feminist icon and sex object, which is perhaps why the film failed to make an impact in the politically charged 1960s.
