A Rather Limited Look at American Cinema
22 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A look at what was going on in American cinema during the sixties and seventies. The directors zoomed in on include Mich Nichols (for "Catch 22" of all choices and "The Graduate" which is much superior). Robert Altman, mainly for MASH. Milos Forman for "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" among others. Dennis Hopper, who I'm not sure belongs in this episode although there are good things about him. We get the heavyweights, Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola. There is Paul Schrader and Woody Allen and Peter Bogdonavich. For violence and cinematography of a whole different variety, we have Sam Peckinpaugh. Roman Polansky really comes into his own at this time (particularly the masterwork, "Chinatown." But there are so many that are left. Somehow Truffaut's "Jules and Jim" make it into this offering.
