Summary
"The 1970s were a golden age for US film-making, with the emergence of such talents as Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Brian De Palma and Robert Altman. Ryan Gilbey now looks afresh at the remarkable movies of this era, and the gifted men who made them." "Today these directors are sometimes lambasted as sell-outs or burn-outs, but their finest films in the 1970s - from American Graffiti to The Conversation, Nashville to Carrie, Jaws to Taxi Driver - still appear as urgent and innovative as they did on first release, and continue to inspire young film-makers at a time when Hollywood movies are once again sadly formulaic." "These directors were characterized by eclecticism, creative hunger and insatiable imagination. But what in the American scene were they reacting against? Just as crucially, what was it they were celebrating? Why have their movies endured? And why do they still dazzle us?" "Gilbey also considers directors who established a body of work in the 1970s (Woody Allen), who blossomed as the decade progressed (Jonathan Demme) or who were prominent figures without being prolific (Stanley Krubrick, Terrence Malick). He takes each film and assesses its place in history, while also scrutinizing its virtues as if for the very first time - as if the movie was opening at a cinema near you this Friday."--Jacket
