Wow! That's quite a list. I didn't think that the seventies had so many great movies. I have always loved and never seem to tire of watching "The Godfather," "Apocalypse Now," "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest," "Midnight Express," "Deliverance," "Patton," "A Bridge Too Far," and "Being There." (and quite a few others on that list that was posted earlier and again below...)

This is the best car chase movie ever made. They crashed about 16 white Dodge Chargers to make it. Real car sounds in the soundtrack. Just a great all around 70s movie which has inspired a lot of people to make movies. We have a soundtrack with classic bands including Mountain. Just get it, you will not be disappointed one bit.

There are a number of dreamy motion sequences that I did not understand when I fist saw it the week it came out in the theater. I think the film was trying to show how someone in a car was missing or mysterious? This just added to the mood that this movie has more of it's fair share of.















In this poster we see a nude Sissy Spacek but her name is not noted on the list of actors. This is because it was her first movie and she was a complete unknown. This movie has to be my favorite gangster movie of all time. Scarface could only dream to be as cool as this flick. A mob boss named Mary Ann ( Gene Hackman ). What else do you want! Get It. This was one of the wildest drive-in masterpieces when it played. Saw it the week it came out.

Watch Aguire, the Wrath of God before you catch Apocalypse Now.

"The Devils" by Ken Russell starring Oliver Reed and Vanessa Regrave, as far as I know it is only released on bootleg on dvd but it is available on vhs, Warner I belive has the rights but they have no release schedule for it (bastards, they should release it before Russell dies, he is getting old)

I find it very interesting both visually, historically and psychologically. It is based on the book "The devils of Loudon" by Aldous Huxley.
