...Shampoo (1975)

Many think it a comedy but Shampoo is, in reality, a morose reflection of Hollywood that didn't make me laugh but was completely absorbing nonetheless. The six lead actors are phenomenal especially Oscar-winning Lee Grant and Goldie Hawn. Warren Beatty, Robert Towne and Hal Ashby have fashioned an absorbing time capsule - one that still rings true in a different time.
