Living at home with his squabbling parents and trapped in a soul-killing job in a Brooklyn hardware store, the restless Tony leaves it all behind on Saturday night, donning a pristine white suit to catch fire on the flashing dance floor. ...a true popculture phenomenon - the Bee Gees soundtrack topped the charts seemingly forever, and the film made a deeply dimpled and pompadoured John Travolta a household name and (alas) fashion template. Saturday Night Fever now appears as a fascinating time capsule of the pre-AIDS disco scene, in which “stayin’ alive” meant something more than survival. Electrifying in its time and enthralling now, Fever is a certified classic. (TIFF)
