    In the 70's no one can hear you scream.

    I'm really taking issue with main review here not the movie itself. Which was enjoyable enough to me at the time, but mind you I was 10. First off this ''post-apocalyptic'' enviroment, looks a hell of a lot like a mall in California, which makes some sense, because it was filmed in one. The cast traipse about robed in short kiana togas in the hues of yellow, green, red. I am at a loss to explain reviwer Brian Dillard's notion that 'renewal' and 'carosel' are different things. Perhaps he read the book, (and God save him if thats true) but in the film, Sandmen chased runners and shot them dead. If you turned 30 you went to carosel to be 'renewed'. There was nothing 'gladitorial' about carosel. Participants dressed up like members of 'Cirqe de Solie' and floated up in something like an anti gravity beam, and when the reached a cetain altitude they exploded. Why did they explode? The film isn't really clear about that. I always assumed it had something to do with the little jewel embedded in everyones hand. Maybe it was a time bomb or something, but then why didn't our heroes explode when they left the city? O.K. more likly there was a hidden laser gun in the carosel arena, but to say that carosel was gladitorial is laughable. It was euthanasia pure and simple. Nobody got out alive. As for Logans life of hedonism there is not as much sex in this movie as a lot of people seem to remember. It is in fact quite tame by todays standards. The young and lovley Farrah Fawcett certainly doesn't show anything we didn't see on Charlies Angels. The famous 'Sex Shop' scene is little more than brief strobe-lit flashes of bodies only 'possibly nude'. Nothing explicit. Even at 'super slow speed' it offers little to see. The saving graces of this film are Roscoe Lee Browne as the single-minded robot BOX. And the delightfull peter Ustinov who seems as confused by the movie as the audience. For his part BOX has the best line in the whole thing. His programming having gone slightly wrong somewhere, he blithely performs his task to freeze all the protein and nutrient matter that comes to his domain... including any hapless human visitors seeking sanctuary. When asked why he does the horrible things he does, his response was simply: ''Its my job!''
