Wow, can't add much to that list. Maybe Harold & Maude (young guy /old lady romance - offbeat and quirky but in a good way) and Woody Allen's early funny ones...

'Nashville' directed by Robert Altman...Brilliant movie, absolute time capsule of 1975 in Tennessee.

IMDb
This movie tells the intersecting stories of various people connected to the music business in Nashville. Barbara Jean is the reigning queen of Nashville but is near collapse. Linnea and Delbert Reese have a shaky marriage and 2 deaf children. Opal is a British journalist touring the area. These and other stories come together in a dramatic climax. Written by Reid Gagle

While I do not meet the age qualification criteria for this thread, I also appreciate that the qualifying posters are likely to have age related dementia. As such, I would like to remind you porridge eating, worthers sucking oldies about the classic 1971 film, Duel.

Great shout - Spielberg's first movie.

Brilliant era for movies and agree with all the ones listed for sure. Chinatown may be my favourite from the 70's but classic Scorsese / De Niro productions and Francis Ford Coppola's masterpieces of the Godfather 1 & 2....

Did anyone mention Mad Max yet?

Thanks for the cut and paste job...

American Graffiti is great too.

If you are interested in movies from this era - this is a brilliant book on it

That and Jaws...the other film that cemented Spielberg as a master of his art in the 70s.

I was born in the 70s but am too young for dementia. My mental issues are all alcohol related - like yours I imagine.
