Cult movies

Maybe 'of the 1960s' should be removed from the thread title.

What 1960s?

Enter the Dragon (1973)

Two favourite 70's films with strong "cult" credentials.

Two Lane Blacktop (1971) - Counter culture road movie with unique film style (little dialogue). Features James Taylor and Dennis Wilson (Beach Boys).

Fat City (1972) - Downbeat earthy film directed by John Huston with Stacey Keach and Jeff Bridges. Backdrop of boxing at the bottom end of the game.

Watched a bit of Tarantino last night, "Kill Bill", silly movie but strangely enough enjoyed it again. Sorry not 60's though.

Ultimate cult film, Z - from 1969..a must see movie!

I remember that film. It made a big impression on me at the time but I'm buggered if I can remember what it was all about. Something to do with a military coup in Latin America, or maybe southern Europe?

Not exactly cult AFAIK, but a few of the obscure and maybe 'unconventional' films from the 60s or thereabouts that I recall seeing.  Being mostly employed during the evening, Picko and I spent more time than we should at the cinema during the day.

 

'Every Home Should Have One' as mentioned above.  Some terrific gags, but overall not a great film.

 

Same applies to 'What's Good For The Goose'  with the highy improbable plot device of Norman Wisdom leaping up and down on a bed alongside a partially clothed Sally Geeson.

 

'Candy'  Just weird.

 

'Tha Family Way'

Getting back to the 1960s - The Italian Job.

It is 50 years this week since the original "Italian Job" was released. One of the best caper films ever made.

Who remembers the classic line "You're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off"
