3
Shaft 1971,  R)
4
Diamonds Are Forever 1971,  PG)
Diamonds Are Forever
Sean looking old and out-of-shape, with a script geared more toward Roger; but it's still classic Bond.
5
Tang shan da xiong (Fists of Fury) (The Big Boss) 1971,  R)
6
Straw Dogs 1971,  R)
7
The Omega Man 1971,  PG)
8
Harold and Maude 1971,  PG)
Harold and Maude
A good dark comedy full of some memorable quotes, but I was expecting a bit more from it.
9
The Panic in Needle Park 1971,  PG)
The Panic in Needle Park
Long before Requiem for a Dream there was this gritty and realistic portrayal of drug use on the streets of NYC.
10
Sunday, Bloody Sunday 1971,  R)
11
Play Misty for Me 1971,  R)
12
Escape from the Planet of the Apes 1971,  G)
13
Carnal Knowledge 1971,  R)
Carnal Knowledge
There's something not right about a couple of 30-somethings playng a couple of collegians, even if they are likeable. But this was a decent relationship movie with a cool end.
14
Such Good Friends 1971,  R)
Such Good Friends
Wonderfully mod and a pervasively effervescent dry sense of humor are just two of the highlights in this witty 70s ahead-of-its-time film.
15
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory 1971,  G)
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
Not quite as good as I remembered, though Gene Wilder was great.
16
The Garden of the Finzi-Continis (Il Giardino dei Finzi-Contini) 1970,  R)
The Garden of the Finzi-Continis (Il Giardino dei Finzi-Contini)
Decent story about oppression in fascist WW2 Italy.
17
THX 1138 1971,  PG)
THX 1138
Pretty good for a low-budget film, but pretty bland as well.
18
Lo strano vizio della Signora Wardh (The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh) 1970,  R)
Lo strano vizio della Signora Wardh (The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh)
Pretty typical giallo. The highlight being the hauntingly atmospheric score as well as the precursory reference to one of the greatest movie titles ever -
"Your Vice is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key."
19
The Mephisto Waltz 1971,  R)
The Mephisto Waltz
Nothing really new here, and obiviously heavily influenced by Rosemary's Baby. Barbara Parkins is sexy and a young Jacqueline Bisset = Elizabeth Hurley = yum.

The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave 1971,  R)
The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave
Not a bad bit of giallo work. Most of it is rather mundane, but the last 20 minutes or so make it worth watching if you're a fan of the genre.
21
Giornata nera per l'ariete (Evil Fingers) (The Fifth Cord) 1971,  Unrated)
Giornata nera per l'ariete (Evil Fingers) (The Fifth Cord)
A rather weak effort at giallo with the original "Django" star, though Silvia Monti looks hot as a young Loren/Welch cross.
22
The Beast of the Yellow Night 1970,  R)
The Beast of the Yellow Night
Typical 70's drive-in movie fare, with a nugget or two of profundity.
23
The Zodiac Killer 1971,  R)
24
Duel 1972,  PG)
Duel
What a snorefest! This movie should've been over after 20 minutes except we have an idiotic main character named David Mann who thinks that driving 65 mph is fast and who likes banging his head against a wall.
25
Countess Dracula 1972,  PG)
Countess Dracula
Nothing special in this Hammer horror cult film.
26
La Figlia di Frankenstein (Lady Frankenstein)(Daughter of Frankenstein) 1971,  R)
La Figlia di Frankenstein (Lady Frankenstein)(Daughter of Frankenstein)
The summary here states it nicely.
27
The Big Doll House 1971,  R)
The Big Doll House
Just another women-in-prison film. They're all the same.
28
Two-Lane Blacktop 1971,  R)
Two-Lane Blacktop
An effective cure for insomnia.
29
Is There Sex After Death? (Is There Love After Death) 1971,  R)
30
Ginger 1971,  R)
31
Women in Revolt 1971,  Unrated)
Women in Revolt
Experimental garbage with some terrible acting.
32
The Trojan Women 1971,  G)
The Trojan Women
Yet another Shakespearean bore in this play off the epic tale.
33
Godson 1971,  R)
