    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    A crusty, malignant but lusty wrench insists itself into the corporate world's semblance of normalcy. Female cog of said corporate system learns to let go of her chokehold on order, as we cheer her series of increasingly mortifying debasements until she's literally stripped of everything and all too ready to embrace the nonsensical lessons of the hirsute patriarchal figure. Post-truth, meet your movie of the moment.

    It's just heartening to know that, had it been released in 2016 instead of 1980, Xanadu would've gotten fantastic reviews.
