Why seventies films are so fucking good.

1. Seventies films show a perverse tendency to integrate, in narratively incidental ways, story information and stylistic devices counterproductive to the films’ overt and essential narrative purposes.
2. Hollywood filmmakers of the 1970s often situate their film-making practices in between those of classical Hollywood and those of European and Asian art cinema.
3. Seventies films prompt spectator responses more uncertain and discomforting than those of more typical Hollywood cinema.
4. Seventies narratives place an uncommon emphasis on irresolution, particularly at the moment of climax or in epilogues, when more conventional Hollywood movies busy themselves tying up loose ends.
5. Seventies cinema hinders narrative linearity and momentum and scuttles its potential to generate suspense and excitement.

I generally feel the ambition among the producers/directors were a lot higher than of those who work today.

Before, it was viewed as an artistic craftmanship which allowed some experimental attitude. Today, it's a obsessive capitalistic industry in full control of everything, from pre-production to the screen, supported by nonsensical scientific econometrics/semidemographics.

Somewhere in the late 90's it all got lost.

filmmakers do take less risks now. in special effects, in writing, in everything really

this
sorcerer is pretty laughable, lacks suspense and has no interesting characters (their backstories ruin everything), but the wages of fear is great

>>64542472
the whole wages of fear is better than sorcerer meme is retarded considering the two have entirely different intentions and merely share a premise

A group of the 70's filmakers decided it's better to make blockbusters and go for the big money.
That group included Spielberg and Lucas.
The studios that were a moneymaking industry, decided that that's the best business model and went along.

Megaflops like Heaven's Gate also did their part in convincing them.

Peter Biskind's Easy Riders, Raging Bulls is the definitive tome on why the 1970's was the greatest decade of American Cinema. it's mandatory reading for ANYONE who loves movies. His companion piece "Down and Dirty Pictures" is also a great read about the 1990's "indie" movement!!!FACT!!!

Fucking disgusting plebs

Friedkin was drunk in power and got to do all the insanities that he wanted. Sorcerer is literally a masterpiece and one of the most visceral films ever made.
