Barbarella

The Swinging ‘60s zoomed into outer space in Roger Vadim’s outré cult fave. Jane Fonda has spent the rest of her career living down her turn in the title role, a galactic ingénue/sexpot who must save the universe in a series of skimpy plastic outfits. The loony production design — a fur-lined spaceship? — fails to overpower an essential sweetness here. -Lee Gardner
