Top Ten 1970s Films On My Movie-Radar

The decade that introduced the Hollywood blockbuster; the rise of "new" Hollywood: Allen, Altman, Ashby, Coppola, Scorsese, etc.; the maturation of several European greats: Bergman, Fellini, Truffaut, to name a few; plus Blaxploitation, disaster flicks, and outer-space! Here's a list of ten classic 1970s films that have managed to elude me so far, but they're on my radar:

The Conformist - 1970

The Hospital - 1971

Sweet Sweetback’s Baad Assssss Song - 1971

What's Up Doc? - 1972

Lenny - 1974

Bite the Bullet - 1975

Smile - 1975

Assault on Precinct 13 - 1976

Harlan County, U.S.A. - 1977

The Tin Drum - 1979
