50 Essential Films from the 1970s

Grit, music, misogyny, feminist, family, mayhem, horror, disillusionment, loneliness, etc.  These are 50 essential 1970s films that I have actually seen and in random order.  Notice huge gaps like All That Jazz, Dawn of the Dead, Manhattan, or Solaris or films that I haven’t seen enough times like Apocalypse Now and The Godfather (perhaps they aren’t on the list for a reason?).
