This is the way to do a documentary of 70's cinema!
29 December 2004 | by bombad_jediSee all my reviews

American Zoetrope is undoubtedly one of the most influential film studios of the past century.

It is truly sad that they had so many troubles in the early years starting out, but it helped to shape the careers of greats like George Lucas, Francis Ford Coppola, Walter Murch, and many more.

The documentary includes a good balance of vintage footage, and interviews with just about everyone you'd care to hear from.

"A Leagacy of Filmmakers" is also included on the THX 1138 DVD, which is a great purchase.

If you are interested in the history of film (and especially film of the '70s) watch this documentary... you'll love it.
