Re: Movies Seen in 2012

37. Saturday Night Fever (A-)

My mother admitted to having seen this multiple times on its initial release, though she didn't remember any of the coarse parts. Which is perhaps in keeping with the general popcultural memory, which is mostly about John Travolta dancing to the Bee Gees. But this is actually a pretty gritty movie, with our young main characters being casually sexist and racist at points, and multiple instances of attempted (or successful) date rape. Makes most of the films aimed at the college crowd these days look tame by comparison. Great soundtrack, great performance by Travolta (the best of his that I've seen, really).
