70 Best Films of the 70's

The 1970's was the Golden Age for cinema. There were so many superb films. However, I've decided to limit myself to 70. It's a nice round number.

Think about it. Directors like Martin Scorsese, Francis Coppola, George Lucas, Stanley Kubrick, Robert Altman, Sam Peckinpah, Mike Nichols, John Cassavetes, Hal Ashby, Bob Fosse, Steven Spielberg, Ken Russell, Sidney Lumet, Jerry Schatzberg, Bob Rafelson, Karel Reisz, Woody Allen, Alan J. Pakula, Paul Mazursky, John Schlesinger, Michael Ritchie, William Friedkin, Peter Bogdanovich, Michael Cimino, John G. Avildsen and many more were doing their best work.

So what's the top film of the 70's? It was directed by Martin Scorsese, and it stars Robert De Niro and Harvey Keitel. No, it's not Taxi Driver (that's Number Two on the list). The best film of the 1970's is Mean Streets.
