American Cinema of the 1970s
10 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We now venture into the 1970s, with the wide lens of Robert Altman and "MASH". (Oddly, although a few Altman films are mentioned, "Nashville" is not one of them.) We are presented "The Graduate", with Benjamin shown as an everyman -- caught between school and Vietnam. The 1970s as a whole were a time of uncertainty.

The decade had dissidents who challenged the style, lead by Dennis Hopper and "The Last Movie". Hopper had already broke away with "Easy Rider". Francis Ford Coppola also rose out of the dissident culture. Coppola was a student of Roger Corman, as was another man: The greatest American director of the 1970s was Martin Scorsese, according to Marc Cousins. (Cousins has repeatedly come back to Scorsese.) We briefly get into Charles Burnett and "black cinema", though this is not dealt with fully and could be an episode all its own. Woody Allen provided very stereotypical Jewish characters, with "Annie Hall" being a descendant of Chaplin's "City Lights".

We even get a peak at Terence Malick, the reclusive director who studied philosophy, and his collaboration with Haskell Wexler.
