1975: A Video Essay

Until recently, I hadn't given much thought to how many interesting movies were released in (or around) the year I was born, 1975. The 1970s were a particularly good decade for cinematic innovation, so I expect you could pick just about any year and find similar quality and resonances, but I'm going to continue to pretend that 1975 was especially special. Because for me it was where it all began.


  1. I'm just enough older than you to remember some of these films when they were new. I enjoyed your reworking of them.

    But did you have to make me wait so long to get to Nashville?
