1970s Movies and Today

I started out this series with the premise that there was something very odd about the way the culture completely fell apart in the 1970s under less strain than in other eras. So I made a quick survey through some iconic films to try to get some answers. I think in the end, I ended up applying more of my Anima insights to the films and finding some interesting ways to rewatch them in that context. Whether it went anywhere all that interesting or not, it was a fun diversion for me.
