@yeahno that was really good, and a rare film that with age reveals new understanding instead of just turning into a museum of increasingly dated values and prejudices.

@lawremipsum Exactly. It ranks up there, I think, with "Network." Not only does it hold its own (weirdly) as a text—even in the face of values changing at a breakneck pace—but it's become _more_ meaningful and meaningful in different ways.

@lawremipsum Also, "9 to 5" is another political film that not only avoids "oh god it was the 80s i'm going to cringe" moments, but that has substantially more bite 40 years later.
