Finally got to see The Year of the Sex Olympics tonight. What a fabulous bit of writing! Even more topical and biting today than it was in 1968, it's slow but steady and holds up very well. The change in tone and direction for the last third is amazing.
The opening few minutes do seem to drag a little, but as we get immersed into this future world and its characters, that fades very quickly. What is left is a solid mix of drama, satire, and black comedy that keeps one watching and manages some great surprises.
