It is the eve of the 1968 presidential election and Beverly Hills hairdresser George Roundy (Warren Beatty) is desperately trying to make a big career move despite being undermined by his overactive libido. A motorcycle riding lothario, George seems to be always on the run but he can never truly escape himself. While Hal Ashby’s film focuses on Roundy and his intertwined circle of lovers, it is the underlying tension of the era’s changing sexual politics and the shortsightedness of the “me” generation that make Shampoo such a biting social critique. (Hal Ashby, USA, 1975, 110 min.)
