"One of the best forgotten films of the '70s ... Slaughterhouse-Five is one of the real gems of its era; it's nearly a perfect film ... as fresh today when it was new." - Stuart Galbraith, DVD Talk
Based on Kurt Vonnegut’s classic absurdist novel Slaughterhouse-Five or The Children’s Crusade, this celebrated film version follows the adventures of Billy Pilgrim, a young man who becomes unstuck in time after being abducted by aliens from the planet Tralfamadore, leading to a moving examination of Billy’s (and Vonnegut’s own) shattering experience as an American prisoner of war. Directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker George Roy Hill (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Sting). (Dir. by George Roy Hill, 1972, USA, 104 mins., Rated R ) Digital
