Colossus: The Forbin Project

Rated R 100 minutes 1971

Above-average science fiction (1970), directed in functional hysteric style by Joseph Sargent. An American supercomputer decides to mate with its Soviet counterpart, and it's up to the man who designed it (Eric Braeden, doing a Gore Vidal impersonation) to put a stop to things before the newlyweds take over the world. The script, by James Bridges (who went on to write and direct The China Syndrome and Urban Cowboy), is literate and discreet but lacks an effective ending.
