The mid-sixties was a time of great social and political foment in the United States. The Hollywood studio system was in decline. The public's taste in films was changing. It would be close to ten years before studio heads learned how to prosper in this new world. Into this void stepped a new generation of actors, directors and writers. For the decade of 1965 to 1975, names like Scorcese, Nicholson, Ashby, Fonda and Redford, to name just a few, were afforded almost unfettered creative license. During this time, these artists made some remarkable films. Last semester we viewed and discussed fourteen films from this period. This spring we will look at fourteen additional films. We will focus on cinematography and themes. We will also discuss the films' cultural issues, how they reflect the decade of the sixties and what relevance they have for us today. Each session will be 3 hours in length. Viewer discretion is advised.
