Between the demise of the Hollywood studio system and the advent of films now known as “blockbusters,” there was a period of spectacular creativity and experimentation in American filmmaking. In the mid-1960s, a new group of film directors, soon to be dubbed Auteurs by their peers and critics, burst on the scene. Visionaries like Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola working with then little known actors like Jack Nicholson, Robert De Niro and Ellen Burstyn crafted a collection of films that revolutionized American filmmaking and revitalized the movie industry. We will see fourteen of these films including The Conversation, The Last Detail, Klute, MASH, The Last Picture Show, and others from the decade of 1965 through 1975. We will explore the background and themes of each film, highlighting topics to recognize and discuss. Please be advised that most of these films contain profanity and depict sexual situations and some contain nudity.
