Barbarella
Based on a French comic strip, Fonda and her then-husband Roger Vadim had a good time with this outrageous movie about the adventures of a 41st century sexual explorer. It makes virtually no sense, but the costumes are fetishistic gems and the set design trips the light fantastic.

Brigitte & Birkin, oh my ...
Screens Review  January 22, 2010, by Raoul Hernandez
"...She had already made 16 films. Her seventeenth made her a star." So boasts the film's director, Roger Vadim (1928-2000), in Bardot Deneuve Fonda, subtitled "My Life With the Three Most Beautiful Women in the World." That same year, 1956, God's Parisian bombshell also starred in Plucking the Daisy (En Effeuillant la Marguerite), scripted by Vadim..."

Tokyo!
This triptych of short films by directors Michel Gondry, Leos Carax, and Bong Joon-ho is a gorgeous, sprawling mess.

"...Falling somewhere between the horrors of Three … Extremes and the beauties of Eros, this triptych of short films set in and underscored by the titular megalopolis is a gorgeous, sprawling mess. If I had to compare it to anything – a challenging task – I'd say it was closest to 1968's Spirits of the Dead, which united Federico Fellini, Louis Malle, and Roger Vadim under the guise of creating a film homage to Edgar Allan Poe..."

Film Review  August 23, 2002, by Marc Savlov
"...With the producer crying in one ear for an end to the troubled production and his kittenish lead purring in the other, Paul is wracked with doubt (his reveries take the form of a chorus of Cahiers du Cinema critics shouting things like, “Do you theenk you're being clayvar?!”), and hamstrung by romantic pressures both on and off the set. But that's just the film's thinnish plot, which serves as a framework from which Coppola dangles far more memorable images and ideas, many of which reference the great Nouvelle Vague filmmakers of the day and others, from Godard to Truffaut, and Roger Vadim to Mario Bava (Dragonfly takes not only Barbarella as its template but also Bava's terrific Danger: Diabolik and a host of Sixties Euro-spy flicks)..."

Screens Review  August 17, 2007, by Shawn Badgley
"...With her, each very much is, male gaze be damned. She's at her most alluring as a wayward nightclub dancer in 1956's Naughty Girl -- which preceded her efforts for Godard (Contempt), Malle (A Very Private Affair), and Clouzot (The Truth) -- and at her most interesting in the disturbing Love on a Pillow (1962), written and directed by her ex-husband Roger Vadim..."

Paramount Theatre plays host to two summer film series
Screens Story  May 31, 2002, by Marc Savlov
"...jumped on the CinemaScope bandwagon in the wake of that film's initial success. Disney's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea with James Mason and company battling that giant, rubbery squid wouldn't have been half as thrilling without the 'Scope, and even second-tier movies like the racy Roger Vadim-directed Brigitte Bardot vehicle And God Created Woman made use of the process..."
