Saturday Night Fever

Saturday Night Fever ★★★½

2022 #902
I'm not sure I would have had a good time in '70s nightclubs what with all the synchronised dance routines and the endless peacocking. From the poster and the soundtrack, I was kinda expecting Saturday Night Fever to be a lot tamer than it actually turned out to be. But no, there's sex, violence, rape, casual racism, c-bombs, and suicide, making for a pretty gritty portrayal of teenage disillusionment through the neon glare of the disco dancefloor. It's actually a lot better than I was expecting too, with Travolta showing his acting chops and that killer soundtrack.
