America in the 70s
As in our own time, the America of the 1970s faced financial insecurity, rising fuel prices, and struggles to end an unpopular war overseas. This led to a sense of instability and a feeling that the old familiar landmarks and trusted standards were being swept away. Nowhere was this more apparent than in the movies of the period. The 70s were a time of unprecedented upheaval for American film. Daring young directors experimented with new visual techniques and narrative styles. Controversial subject matter and unconventional characters found their way into mainstream movie houses. Familiar genres like the musical, the war pic, or the gangster movie were reinterpreted and blockbusters changed the way movies were marketed and sold.
