With its elaborate set pieces and otherworldly costumes, Roger Vadim’s 1968 camp classic practically pulses with the vibrancy of peak sci-fi psychedelia. Jane Fonda is magnetic as the titular astronautical aviatrix on a quest to rid the world of the Positronic Ray (it was the Cold War, people!) and spread pure love throughout the universe. Crossing intergalactic paths with a blind angel, silver-fanged babydolls and a certain sadomasochistic invention dubbed “the Excessive Machine”, our heroine moves from her entirely shag-carpeted spaceship to the core of the 16th planet of Tau Ceti in no less than eight costume changes. With perhaps the most seductive spacesuit strip this side of Alien, Barbarella’s charm will float you out of the theater on the wings of Pygar; its psych-lounge tunes will follow you home.
