Damned interesting piece of work that's never received the attention it deserves. Socially oriented sf is more of a grownup's kind of thing, and since the US's culture is more of a 12-year-old's than a adult's, well... you figure out the rest of the story. This story is still intriguing, and helped along by a terrific cast and one of the old guard of the German filmmaking community (of all people)

I hated having to read Margaret Atwood's TERRIBLE prose in high school English class, but this adaptation of her novel about a bleak future is actually pretty good. Duvall makes a wonderfully slimy fascist and the story has a few unexpected twists along the way.

Though not a very skilled adaptation of Margaret Atwood's masterwork, this film is oddly memorable. It sticks in your head; it is not the main cast, though Faye Dunaway is impeccable; I think, rather, there are moments where the imagery of the novel is finely rendered [such as the scene where the Handmaids attack one of their own in front of a row of hanged criminals], and these stick in the memory as all great dystopia should.
