A nuclear holocaust has caused a new ice age and all but wiped out humanity... and the survivors kill time with pointless murder games. Robert Altman's Quintet has two of the greatest movie concepts in history jammed together, in a quintessentially 1970s blend of apocalypse and wacky death game. No wonder Paul Newman is excited! It's like stumbling into Rollerball, Death Race 2000, Jericho and the Sci Fi Channel's Ice all rolled into one. (And check out the proto-Bartertown sets, complete with weird slogans.) Sadly, the seemingly innocent game of Quintet hides a dark secret, as you'll see after the jump.
