This was the second time I've seen this classic.  I really like it, in all its flawed glory.  It's just gloriously strange and grotesque, in a stultifying manner, which jives perfectly with the overbearing society that plays the villain.  As far as dystopian movies go, this is a great option.  It's weird enough that it feels "right" in that way that slight abstraction can have with art.  It's bizarre enough not to map directly, but close enough that we still see plenty of ourselves in it.
