Rollerball is a 1975 science fiction film that takes place in a post-"Corporate Wars" dystopia. Norman Jewison is the director and James Caan stars. Also starring are John Houseman, Ralph Richardson and John Beck (who has a Star Trek connection). Our DVD has few special features but does have a commentary by Jewison. The sexism in this movie is mind-bending. Women serve only as ornaments and tools. Well, I take that back as there is one corporate executive shown who is a woman.
Moria notes that this film "was one of the few A-budget and few successful science-fiction films made prior to the big 1977 sf boom." The New York Times calls it "elaborate and very silly". Salon.com has a review. Variety praises the acting: "The performances of the principals are uniformly tops."
