Not at all the kind of movie I thought I was getting into. I thought it had something to do with "Bloody Sunday". No shit! Instead it's about an unusual love triangle and there's a scene with little kids smoking pot.
Stehako's rating:
One of Tarantino's favorite films
Stehako's rating:

Pacino was clearly destined for greatness...

Shaft (1971)

Macbeth (1971)

People who added this item 139 Average listal rating (70 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 7.3
The Cassavettes style doesn't make up for the unlikable characters in this one. And it misses the hysteria and improv like in "Faces" and "Influence". But hey, it's still noteworthy and memorable.
Stehako's rating:
The least entertaining of the MP movies but still quite a bit of good Brit humor

Klute (1971)


One of Fonda's best roles and Sutherland's most subtle.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 17 Average listal rating (14 ratings) 7.9 IMDB Rating 7.6
Duel (1971)
Spielberg's first is nothing amazing but it's damn fine work for such a budget and you can see his style in progress.

People who added this item 524 Average listal rating (344 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 7
Bananas (1971)
Woody Allen throws up another creative angle on the comedy. Unfortunately the execution isn't terribly entertaining.
Stehako's rating:
Hopper goes mad and the results are... quite interesting.

Paddy's great script is put to good use with George C Scott in the lead, giving one of the best monologues of all time.

The Beguiled (1971)

People who added this item 836 Average listal rating (548 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.6
One of the first Bonds I saw, so it holds a good place; but really it's not one of the better ones. However it does show of early 1970s British style pretty well.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 168 Average listal rating (85 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 7
Some very unique and fun dialogue-heavy scenes about yes, carnal knowledge, or lack thereof

People who added this item 682 Average listal rating (366 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 6.7
THX 1138 (1971)
Back when Lucas was experimental and creative in maximizing his ability to make art from constraint.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 521 Average listal rating (294 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 7.4
Get Carter (1971)

Dirty Harry (1971)


Eastwood at his Eastwood best.
The first of the series is probably still the best.

People who added this item 1064 Average listal rating (633 ratings) 8 IMDB Rating 7.9


Classic unusual love story with exceptional performances and a beautiful soundtrack lead by Cat Stevens

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 1039 Average listal rating (651 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 7.7


One of the best-paced action films of the 70's. In fact, it almost defines the 70's action genre.

People who added this item 6092 Average listal rating (4125 ratings) 8.2 IMDB Rating 8.3




A Kubrick masterpiece.
Stehako's rating:




So yes, this isn't Kubrick quality but it's one of my favorite movies of all time.
