Home Movie Library – 1970’s

The 1970’s. Watergate and Nixon. Americans no longer trust their government. Films reflect this uncertainty and ambiguity. The decade of anti-heroes. The non-conformists of the 60’s become even more popular, emulating their European counterparts. Blaxploitation films. Roger Corman is more Corman than ever. The film school generation: Coppola, Spielberg, Scorsese, Lucas, De Palma. The glamour leads of the past get taken over by the mavericks: Jack Nicholson, Gene Hackman, Bruce Dern, Dustin Hoffman. The American “auteur films.” But Jaws and Star Wars remind the industry that it’s still a business. Heaven’s Gate hits the death nail on the coffin. The blockbuster emerges triumphant.

Overseas, art house films begin to slow down even though they’re still very much alive. West Germany catapults to the top: Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Werner Herzog, Wim Wenders, Volker Schlödorff. Australia trails right behind. Britain gets eccentric: Nicholas Roeg, Ken Russell. And France gets more sexual: Bertrand Blier, Francois Truffaut, Louis Malle. Spain loses Franco and the Third World keeps catching up.
