Best Films of the Decade: 1970 - 1979

I simply haven't seem enough films from the 1970's to put together a list of the 25 best (cut me a break, I wasn't alive yet!), but of the ones I have seen, these were all deserving. As with my list from the 1980's, this will be a work in progress that I hope to complete and refine as I watch more films from this important and influential era of cinema.

  • Alien
  • Annie Hall
  • Apocalypse Now
  • Chinatown
  • A Clockwork Orange
  • Close Encounters of the Third Kind
  • The Deer Hunter

  • MASH
  • Monty Python and the Holy Grail
  • One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
