Excellent Focus on Significant Decade
29 July 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I had forgotten what great movies came out of this decade. The George Lucas/Steven Spielberg epics, for instance. But the directors and actors this era produced are hard to beat. Many were appearing for the first time (Redford and Hoffman, for instance). Great young directors like Peter Bogdanovich and Francis Ford Coppola. This is just scratching the surface, of course. Don't miss this if you have not seen it.
