If you have a solid knowledge of American film history, then you won't find this documentary terribly enlightening.
A beautiful homage to the films of the 70s and the filmmakers who brought them about.
This is just for film nerds. Some of the greatest directors talk about the change from the big studio feel good films of the 50's to the more artistic and dark films of the late 60's and early 70's. Its very interesting to think that some of the movies that today are little independent films were blockbusters during that time. Some really interesting stuff.
Muddled, unfocused, meandering and surprisingly lacking in depth for such a long documentary miniseries. Not much new info for fans of auteurist New Hollywood cinema.
Great documentary about great movies!
Its a bit too general for my taste . . . and there are some strangely absent personalities. But if you are patient, there are some amusing anecdotes scattered throughout. Also, its rather fitting (and more than a little moving) that just about everyone acknowledges that Hal Ashby was the real king of the 70s . . his steady hand in the director's chair produced some the decades greatest films.
watch this movie with a pen and paper at hand. there are some titles you're gonna want to write down
great material. execution... meh
Best documentary on the Indy film movement I've ever seen.
I hadn't really noticed how American cinema changed in the 70's before. Actually some great, dark and twisted, films were produced and changed the direction of film making for the good. This is a documentary of a load of talking head directors and some clips of 70's films. Good to jot down a few films you might have missed and fairly interesting but nothing more than a talking heads documentary really.
