GANJA & HESS (1973)

An “experimental” horror movie that’s about vampires, sort of, and… other things? What things you ask? I’m not sure.

STAR WARS (1977)

Somewhere beneath everything that’s been piled on top of it is one of the greatest movies ever made.

BLACK CHRISTMAS (1974)

Seriously one of the better horror movies I’ve seen, surrounded by jingle bells and tinsel.

ANNIE HALL (1977)

My favorite romantic comedy of all time, it uses new tricks in every scene to get inside the neurotic heads of its characters.

THE FRENCH CONNECTION (1971)

The car chase is justly famous, but these days its cops with a “shoot first ask questions later” attitude are extremely hard to root for.

CHINATOWN (1974)

The definitive neo-noir, a movie I love, now inextricably linked with the crimes of its director.
