A Decade Under the Influence | Chicago Reader

A Decade Under the Influence

This feature chronicling the American cinema of the 1970s was written and directed by Richard LaGravenese and the late Ted Demme for the Independent Film Channel, which will show a longer version in three parts later this year. Edited down to 108 minutes for theatrical release, it offers a breezily entertaining survey of the rebellious and fecund period bracketed by Dennis Hopper's Easy Rider (1969) and George Lucas's Star Wars (1977), with a great many self-satisfied anecdotes from graying lions (Hopper, Sidney Lumet, Martin Scorsese, Paul Schrader, Francis Coppola, Robert Altman, Peter Bogdanovich). As one might expect from IFC, actors and directors dominate the interview segments, which may be the reason the narrative never finds its way to Heaven's Gate.
