Now I know this might seem like a shameless way to get other people to find loads of 1970s crime films for me... and it is!
Well, I've done most of the work anyway, hopefully.
This is my favourite decade of cinema and my favourite genre, both married together in perfect harmony. I've probably watched many of the classics but I know there are a bunch out there, especially foreign language ones, that I haven't as yet seen - many of which are on this list.
But I know this is also a period and genre that many love here on Letterboxd so let's see if we can get something approaching a comprehensive list going on.
