Taschen’s Best Movies of…

Best of Movies of the 70s-1_0

I found on our bookshelves the other day three awesome books : Best Movies of the 70s, 80s and 90s.

These glorious Taschen books are full of facts and photos and celebrate the “best” of film from these three decades. So, I’ve decided to watch/rewatch them, as chronologically listed in the books. I have, however, been selective in my choices. I have chosen to watch only those that have fantasy, horror, science fiction listed as their descriptors (includes thriller types). Otherwise I’ll be watching them for years!

First up, the 70s.

In order, I will be watching (and reviewing) :

Straw Dogs (1971)
Klute (1971)
Dirty Harry (1971)
Shaft (1971)
A Clockwork Orange (1971)
The French Connection (1971)
Harold and Maude (1971)
Cabaret (1972)
The Godfather (1972)

Eraserhead (1977)
Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977)
