MANHATTAN (1979)

HOW WAS THIS EVER OK, BABY BOOMERS? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? But the cinematography is pretty and there are a lot of great one-liners.

JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR (1973)

A very early-70s rock opera about the Crucifixion, complete with tanks, machine guns, and a dancing King Herod. Happy Easter.

PLAY MISTY FOR ME (1971)

Those who know Jessica Walter’s work on “Arrested Development” may be interested in her early performance as a crazy stalker terrorizing Clint Eastwood’s handsome jazz DJ.

RYAN’S DAUGHTER (1970)

Lots of beautiful Irish locations can’t save a movie that is incredibly long for the amount of story it has and includes a series of truly awful performances.

M*A*S*H (1970)

A war movie for the anti-war crowd, and a comedy that inadvertently launched the biggest TV series of all time.

TAXI DRIVER (1976)

Scorsese’s portrait of the classic lone wolf white male remains highly acclaimed, but I wonder if it hasn’t done more harm than good.

AGUIRRE, DER ZORN GOTTES (1972)

A descent into madness with conquistadors searching fruitlessly for El Dorado, that Werner Herzog dragged a full movie crew down the Amazon to shoot.
