AMARCORD (1974)

Federico Fellini’s exaggerated childhood memories form the basis for this story of a year in the life of a 1930s Italian small town.

BLACK CHRISTMAS (1974)

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

CHINATOWN (1974)

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

THE EXORCIST (1974)

Still shocking, after all these years.

BLAZING SADDLES (1974)

Mel Brooks takes a western pastiche and pushes the boundaries of comedy about racism. Oh, and it’s super funny.
