ILX Best Films of the 1970s

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed
So I'm going to go ahead and start this. There is no official nomination process, you can just use this thread to list and talk up your favorites. It would be nice if someone kept track of all films listed, for reference, but I'm not going to do that.

You can send a ballot in to me at any time, the email address is ilx1970sfilm@gmail.com. I will receive ballots for ONE MONTH!!! This is plenty of time, I will take nothing else after August 22, 12 noon CST. This is the only time period that you have to remember. I will bump the topic up each time it falls off the front page, but I will do nothing to get people to send ballots in. If you want 10 people to decide the best films of the 70s, fine by me. After that, I will compile the results and have the reveal.

Point system is as follows: Vote for 20 Films. Your number 1 = 20 pts, 2 = 19pts, etc.

Go.

Also, I will pull comments from this thread and whatever else I Can find on ILX, but if you send me some with your ballots, it would be greatly appreciated.

The Red Circle (Jean-Pierre Melville)
*A crime film with the coolest characters ever?

Millhouse (Emile de Antonio)
*The power of montage!

Shaft

The Grande Bouffe (Marco Ferreri)
*A much better (and less literal) interpretation of The 120 Days of Sodom than Pasolini's crappy version. Four bored bourgeiose men decide to eat themselves to death!

Phantom of the Paradise

Don't Touch the White Woman! (Ferreri)
*What if general Custer had fought against Indians in modern Paris? Great surrealist fun.

Barry Lyndon
*Definitely underrated.

The Man Who Would Be King

Small Change (Truffaut)
*The best film about childhood ever?

The Tenant
*The weirdest, most disturbing film Polanski has ever made.

Silent Movie (Mel Brooks)

Cross of Iron (Peckinpah)

Attack of the Killer Tomatoes

The Lord of the Rings (Ralph Bakshi)
*Loved it as a kid, too bad Bakshi didn't get the chance to make the second half.

The Adventures of Picasso (Tage Danielsson)
*The best post-sound silent film I've ever seen.

Lupin III: The Mystery of Mamo

1941 (Spielberg)
*Spielberg's best film, also his response to Dr. Strangelove.

Life of Brian

Manhattan
*Woody Allen's best, probably, though there's plenty to choose from.

Stalker

I had no idea that it was really that easy to edit on Wikipedia. I just looked at their list of 70s films, and Raging Bull (1980) was listed, so I deleted it. Voila!

I kinda half-heartedly suggest The Wiz now. I love it with all my heart, but I realize it might not really be that great a movie.

I just realized that my two favorite films of the 70s are probably THE WIZARDS and THE WIZ.

emil.y (emil.y), Monday, 22 August 2005 14:45 (fourteen years ago) link

Here's my ballot. I thought the films listed in this thread were the nominees so I probably left out some things I would have voted for otherwise.

1. A Clockwork Orange
2. The Rocky Horror Picture Show
3. Aguirre the Wrath of God
4. El Topo
5. Phantom of the Paradise
6. Shampoo
7. Weekend
8. Performance
9. Up in Smoke
10. Harold & Maude
11. Satan's Brew
12. Solaris
13. Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory
14. Beyond the Valley of the Dolls
15. The Brood
16. The Long Goodbye
17. Susperia
18. Killing of a Chinese Bookie
19. The Muppet Movie
20. Dawn of the Dead

walter kranz (walterkranz), Monday, 22 August 2005 14:49 (fourteen years ago) link

Oops, I changed El Topo to the Holy Mountain.

walter kranz (walterkranz), Monday, 22 August 2005 14:50 (fourteen years ago) link

Also, in retrospect I would have included Minnie and Moskowitz rather than Killing of a Chinese Bookie.

walter kranz (walterkranz), Monday, 22 August 2005 14:53 (fourteen years ago) link

I understand Morbius' perspective. If I'd seen as much as he appears to have, I might feel the same way. Or maybe I'd still put Coppola at the top, who knows. (See all the critics who vote for The Godfather and Citizen Kane in Sight and Sound's poll.) I probably wouldn't be as snotty about it, but that's just me. I've come to think of him as an endearing presence on these threads, the hectoring crank quietly fuming in the corner and periodically letting you know he still thinks you're an idiot.

gypsy mothra (gypsy mothra), Monday, 22 August 2005 14:53 (fourteen years ago) link

Fuck, I forgot Superfly.

walter kranz (walterkranz), Monday, 22 August 2005 15:03 (fourteen years ago) link

I'm really not convinced too many ppl here are idiots. I just wish you were less incurious about the breadth of an art form before you make retrospective lists. e.g., I find some of kranz's picks overrated or even dreadful, but at least he's seen a lot.

wk, which "Weekend"? cuz the Godard film is '67.

Dr Morbius (Dr Morbius), Monday, 22 August 2005 15:13 (fourteen years ago) link

Who's incurious? Not having seen things =/= not wanting to see them, it just means you haven't seen it yet. And not having something on a ballot also =/= not having seen it. It's possible to see an awful lot of movies and still think, e.g., that Star Wars deserves a place on a 1970s film poll. (You can make an equally good case that Star Wars is terrible; but then, you can also make a case that Bresson is terrible. I wouldn't agree with either of those positions, but I could respect people who did.) (And I left off the only 1970s Bresson I've seen -- Lancelot -- because I found it ponderous. Which at least is something you can't say about Star Wars. Or I suppose you could. But I wouldn't.)

Point being, you're making an awful lot of assumptions about people's range of curiosity and exposure based on what they put on a message-board film-poll ballot. While refusing, of course, to submit your own list for similar assessment (admiration or derision). I'd personally like to see your list, because there are probably things on it I'd like to see. Your mention of Sembene has already prompted me to add Xala to my Netflix queue. If you're actually enthusiastic about the art form rather than scoring some kind of imagined intellectual superiority points, you've got an audience here of people interested in movies who'd probably like to hear your recommendations. But that doesn't seem to be your aim. Being condescending about other people's taste and/or level of expertise is cheap and easy.

ONCE AGAIN THIS IS NOT THE FUCKING "SIGHT AND SOUND" POLL. WE'RE JUST PEOPLE ON A MESSAGE BOARD WHO LIKE MOVIES AND WANT TO SEE WHAT OTHER PEOPLE'S FAVORITE MOVIES ARE, TOO.

jaymc (jaymc), Monday, 22 August 2005 15:52 (fourteen years ago) link


Gyp, I still don't think I'm being condescending. Since I started going to movies semi-regularly in the mid '70s, perhaps I'm just more protective of the sublime and innovative things that were done in that decade. And yes, I know ppl under 30 or 35 haven't had that much time to see older films, but it IS easier now than when Teenage Morbius set the alarm clock so he could watch "Dr Strangelove" or "Red Dust" at 2am.

And just for damage control, I voted.
(on any given day I could replace 8 or 10 of these 20)


(1) Chinatown (Polanski)
(2) The Mirror (Tarkovsky)
(3) Barry Lyndon (Kubrick)
(4) Aguirre, the Wrath of God (Herzog)
(5) Fox and His Friends (Fassbinder)
(6) The Magic Flute (Bergman)
(7) Nashville (Altman)
(8) Xala (Sembene)
(9) Ali: Fear Eats the Soul (Fassbinder)
(10) The Long Goodbye (Altman)
(11) Amarcord (Fellini)
(12) Tristana (Bunuel)
(13) The Godfather Part II (Coppola)
(14) Annie Hall (Allen)
(15) Female Trouble (Waters)
(16) Cabaret (Fosse)
(17) In a Year of 13 Moons (Fassbinder)
(18) Five Easy Pieces (Rafelson)
(19) Ulzana's Raid (Aldrich)
(20) Two-Lane Blacktop (Hellman)


And Paunchy, you need to be sitting on those hands. After you wash them.

Aw shit. Like I said, I took that big huge list posted upthread as the nominee list. Oops.

walter kranz (walterkranz), Monday, 22 August 2005 17:00 (fourteen years ago) link

I put Slapshot and Bedknobs and Broomsticks

The Original Jimmy Mod: Kind Warrior (The Famous Jimmy Mod), Monday, 22 August 2005 17:02 (fourteen years ago) link

Aguirre is going to do well. Morbius some of your objections are valid but they seem to assume that people are able to spend more time on this than is actually the case. I like your list though. I feel like I've seen a ton of Fassbinder films and yet I've seen none of the three you nominated.

walter kranz (walterkranz), Monday, 22 August 2005 17:06 (fourteen years ago) link

OK Dr. M, that's a nice list. I appreciate it. Don't agree with all of it, naturally. I'm not nearly the fan of Chinatown or Nashville that others are, although the former would at least make my top 30. As would Fox and His Friends and Amarcord, probably.

Come to think of it, why isn't Little Big Man on more of these lists? What's the matter with you people?!?

gypsy mothra (gypsy mothra), Monday, 22 August 2005 17:08 (fourteen years ago) link

I dunno. I have only the vaguest memory of it. Saw it on TV -- kind of a Saturday afternoon matinee movie. I never thought much of it.

Paunchy Stratego (kenan), Monday, 22 August 2005 17:13 (fourteen years ago) link

As Arthur Penn said at a screening of Little Big Man, "Isn't it better than the remake, Dances with Wolves?"

I like the movie fine -- it probly works on me better than any other of AP's, including Bonnie & Clyde -- but there are sequences where the picaresque shtick works less well than others (the gay stay-at-home brave, Richard Mulligan as Custer). It's just not in serious contention for best 20 of the decade. Chief Dan George (in this and Josey W) is certainly one of the supporting actors of the '70s.

btw I spent maybe 15 minutes on my ballot. And am already rueing the absence of Maurice Pialat, "The Day of the Locust," etc.

haha, Bedknobs and Broomsticks is probably the first film I saw of all mentioned.

Dr Morbius (Dr Morbius), Monday, 22 August 2005 17:47 (fourteen years ago) link

Okay, I just got home, and at 6pm CST, I am no longer accepting any more ballots. I will accept all the ones that came in the afternoon though. If I didn't received it via email, it will not be counted. I'm not going by lists posted in this threads. I will finish tabulating the results now, expect the reveal to start in a few days, in a new thread. Thank you all.

This weekend at the earliest, all the votes are counted, i'm just gathering comments (feel free to send me some) and writing the html for each entry, finding pics. Shouldn't take too long, I could knock it out if a few hours if I don't stop, but I'll allow myself a week.

Mike O. (Mike Ouderkirk), Tuesday, 23 August 2005 02:01 (fourteen years ago) link

Should "Performance" actually be included? I know it was released in the 1970s, but it was made in 1968 or 9.

Tom May (Tom May), Tuesday, 23 August 2005 11:13 (fourteen years ago) link

I didn't check any of the dates, I was just going on what you guys thought. Anyway, Performance didn't place in the top 100.

Jeff-PTTL (Jeff), Tuesday, 23 August 2005 11:20 (fourteen years ago) link

"Performance" was released in 1970. "Raging Bull" was 'made' (ie principal photography) in '79, so I don't see what that has to do with anything. A movie doesn't exist til someone sees it.

Dr Morbius (Dr Morbius), Tuesday, 23 August 2005 13:24 (fourteen years ago) link

What does an ILXor think of Joe? I watched this a couple of days ago -- it certainly wasn't fun, and by the end of it I thought it was a bad movie, but it's stuck with me pretty well, and I think maybe it's a decent film without any sympathetic characters.

Rock Hardy, Saturday, 5 January 2008 15:34 (twelve years ago) link

Man I've wanted to see that movie for so long. I was under the impression that the characters weren't meant to be unsympathetic tho?
