Science fiction sex comedy with Jane Fonda in her prime starting the film with one of the best stripteases ever put on film. It is a colorful psychedelic movie that don't take itself serious at all. The sets look like leftovers from the original "Star Trek" but there is a timelessness over it that is hard to describe. Anita Pallenberg's raspy dark voice steal the show as the villainous lesbian queen.
Intriguing as an artifact of the bygone hippie era. Barbarella's personality and the world she comes from give something of a sense of what the movement was gunning for (no army, no police, no military). But yeah; it's pretty terrible. Barbarella is nearly worthless as a protagonist, constantly in need of saving, killing without compunctions (in spite of her backstory), and having almost no part in the climax.
Overbearing 1960s sci-fi sexploitation film; I love everything about it. The story is so far out in left field, but doesn't ever seem to take itself too seriously, which reflected in my mood when I watched it for the first time. Barbarella's sexually-charged quest to find and rescue scientist Durand-Durand just escalates in ridiculousness with each passing minute in such a great way.
