200 Favorite Films of the 1970s

At the start of the 1970s, Hollywood was suffering from some financial struggles. Born as a result was "The New Hollywood". Studios were looking for smaller budgets and were more willing to take risks with young independent filmmakers who were given creative freedom. Films were not made primarily for "stars" the way they were in the old studio days, and performances took a full turn towards a method style of acting. Thus Hollywood films of 1970s reflected the influences of international films from the 1950s and 1960s, specifically the European filmmakers (and perhaps most notable the French New Wave of the 1960s). American war and crime films became much grittier and went away from conventional genre. Meanwhile, European cinema was now prepared to take on a more global presence in the mainstream of America and those films reflected deeper meanings and artistry. Horror cinema reached a new found artistic peak throughout the world, specifically in Italy (with old masters like Mario Bava and new filmmakers such as Dario Argento). Japanese cinema was towards the end of its "New Wave" movement that began in the late 1950s, and its film industry suffered from the emergence of television.

The 1970s also perhaps gave birth to what has since defined the industry and exploded in the 1980s - the Blockbuster. The influential film that might of ascended it all was 1975s Jaws directed by a then young and not well known filmmaker Steven Spielberg, who like many of the directors to emerge in the New Hollywood, was a young filmmaker inspired by influences of 1950s/60s international films and classic Golden Era Hollywood.

Look over the list ... I would be very interested in you sending your choices or sharing feedback (did I miss anything?).
