Quintet (1979)

Starring: PN, Fernando Rey, Bibi Anderson

Directed by: Robert Altman

Summary: In a post-apocalyptic world without heat, all survivors have for entertainment is a dice game called "Quintet" where players try to eliminate each other. When Essex (PN) arrives in town with his pregnant bride, he gets involved with a group that begins playing the game for real. Check out the Internet Movie Database.

Trivia: One of the first movies produced by Lion's Gate Films.
The majority of the movie was filmed in the empty Man and His World Pavillion on St. Helen's Island.(The Island is connected to Montreal by Bridges and the subway.) It was originally built for Expo 67 and remained standing for several more years.

The Newman Factor & Rating:This movie is an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000 waiting to happen. This might be my 2nd least favorite PLN flick: 6 for Paul, 4 for the film.
