    One of the best line-ups of the 70s. I am a huge sucker for Nashville.

    Not a bad lineup.

    Barry Lyndon is a stunning film to look at but it is also a very hard and long film to sit through. I respect it but don’t love it.

    Dog Day Afternoon is extermely entertaining and also very well made…and it contains several strong performances from a great ensemble.

    Jaws is easily the most entertaining film of the group and Spielberg managed to pull it off despite all of the legendary battles he had to go through.

    Nashville is an interesting case for me. It gets so much praise and attention but when I first saw it, I didn’t react as strongly to it as others have. I think it could use a revisit. 

    One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is a very good film though it kind of underwhelmed me upon first viewing as I kept hearing what a masterpiece it was.

    My vote goes to DOG DAY AFTERNOON.

    Great lineup.  All have amazing qualities and are all quite different directorially (is that a word?)  Lumet gets best director this year…Jaws is such a good time, and all the elements come together perfectly.

    1. Jaws
    2. Dog Day Afternoon
    3. Nashville
    4. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
    5. Barry Lyndon

    I’m a huge fan of “Jaws” and “Dog Day,” but I simply adore “Nashville.”  Every time I see it (and I’ve seen it 6 or 7 times), I find something new and extraordinary.  Not all of Altman’s multi-level mashups have worked, but “Nashville” was like lightning in a bottle.  For me at least, everything just clicked, including Joan Tewkesbury’s prescient script, which eerily chronicles the rise of a home-spun 3rd-party presidential candidate a full 17 years before Ross Perot.

    Barry Lyndon is the superior film in every way (including the length and pacing), except for its leading man.

    It’s been such a long time since I’ve seen Cuckoo’s Nest, but that first viewing experience continues to exert such a powerful hold over me. Haven’t yet seen Barry Lyndon or Nashville, though.

    ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST…
