A DECADE UNDER THE INFLUENCE
I last watched this back in 2012, but decided to watch it again as it is a very good documentary about movie-making.
It starts off in the late sixties when films were made big and starred The Kirkster amongst others, then moves onto the seventies when new directors started experimenting and made films that were about real people and real life. By the end of the seventies they were making films like Star Wars and Jaws, pure escapism and more uplifting. It was quite a decade really.
There are interviews with people like Francis Ford Coppola, Bruce Dern, Julie Christie, Roger Corman, Sydney Pollack, Peter Bogdanovich, and Dennis Hopper.
I have seen many of the films mentioned, but there are just as many that I have not seen, so I am going to seek some of them out.
A very good watch if you like a bit of film history.
