Guest Co-Host: John Kenneth Muir
In the future there will be no war. There will only be Rollerball.
Writer John Kenneth Muir joins us in our discussion of Norman Jewison's 1975 dystopian film, Rollerball wherein Jonathan E (James Caan) is a star in a game where individual achievement is a threat to the Corporate powers that be. We discuss the 2002 remake, and the two adult versions of the film(s).
We also talk to actress Ashlie Atkinson of the Gotham Girls about life as a present day roller girl.
