29. I recall it was an excellent film. I would love to see it again.

Good lord, you'd never see that movie made today. Really makes me think about what a different time the '70s were. I was just a teenager, but I recall vividly the vibe - the momentum swinging away from authoritarianism, and the growing distrust. It seemed like for this brief window of time people were actually willing to see the world the way it really works. Not everyone, of course, but a lot of people. Too much message control in place now for that to happen again - that is, until we reach some sort of breaking point. I hope I live to see it.
