Amarcord (1974)

""I remember." Perhaps that's slightly misleading if you regard memory as purely objective recollection, which this movie obviously isn't." ‐ Parallax View

Scenes from a Marriage (Scener ur ett äktenskap) (1974)

"In Scenes from a Marriage we are only infrequently offered relief from the claustrophobic intimacy resulting from Bergman's preoccupation with the faces of Liv Ullmann and Erland Josephson. " ‐ Parallax View

Jaws (1975)

"Jaws, beyond being a minor triumph of special effects and fabricated reality, is really a well-constructed and -executed film that deserves attention and praise for its craftsmanship if nothing else. " ‐ Parallax View

Night Moves (1975)

"Distance and detachment are important in Night Moves not only in describing Harry Moseby's (Hackman's) relationship, or non-relationship, with the world around him, but also in exploring some of Penn's own attitudes." ‐ Parallax View

The Day of the Locust (1975)

"Schlesinger handles his characters as though at the end of a long stick, turning irony into a cruel form of entrapment..." ‐ Parallax View

Race with the Devil (1975)

"In Race with the Devil any lingering image of the quietly angry-young-something [Peter] Fonda of the late Sixties goes out the window." ‐ Parallax View

The Missouri Breaks (1976)

"More than a fair share of iridescent, long-shadowed mornings and ghostly blue, otherworldly evenings mark the twilight of an era in The Missouri Breaks, Arthur Penn's end-of-the-West Western." ‐ Parallax View

I Shot Jesse James (1949)

"... a tension between the heroic and the infamous, between a myth of the West and the psychology of a tragically flawed protagonist." ‐ Parallax View

Stay Hungry (1976)

"... the wide variety of emotional responses being elicited in rapid-fire succession by the director makes Stay Hungry a hard movie to trust." ‐ Parallax View

The Shootist (1976)

"[John] Wayne's performance as J.B. Books is a soft-spoken articulation of toughness, weighted with an elegiac sense of mortality accruing not only to the Books legend." ‐ Parallax View

Bound for Glory (1976)

"... to a large extent about how, in the Seventies, we see Woody Guthrie as a folk hero." ‐ Parallax View

Rocky (1976)

"Sylvester Stallone's meticulous job of screenwriting... is largely responsible for making Rocky such an interestingly compassionate treatment of big guys against little guys. " ‐ Parallax View
