Gritty 70s movies.

Post  James Stocks on Tue Apr 23, 2013 12:33 am

I was watching PRIME CUT recently and I just got in the mood to plow through a bunch of 70s crime flicks I have. They just don't make em like they used to. These are my favorites:

DIRTY HARRY - Obviously.
CHARLEY VARRICK - For my money an underrated Siegel flick.
THE FRENCH CONNECTION - As far as cop films go, this is great.
THE CONVERSATION - Coppola always gets marks for GODFATHER and APOCALYPSE NOW, but I think this deserves as much acclaim. With Hackman, you can never go wrong.
CHINATOWN - More film noir, but from this era I can't think why it should be excluded.

I've been eager to catch a couple of more I thought of over the years. THE ANDERSON TAPES, with Sir Sean Connery and a young Christopher Walken? I've seen only a few minutes of it (Netflix Instant had a major glitch where it only played the first six minutes, pissed me off). Any recommendations?

And while this might be more blaxploitation, I just LOVE the trailer. Still haven't seen it yet but it's in my Q.



Any recommendations, folks?
