Seventies Cinema

Kim told me yesterday that she was going to consult her favorite book about seventies cinema. She wanted ideas for the International Arts Society film series, specifically films in the same spirit as Antonioni's Zabriskie Point. When I walked into the kitchen just now, I was excited to see the book on the counter, with a handwritten list next to it. I picked up the list, eager to see what she had come up with:
Dishwasher Soap
Clorox II
Laundry Soap
Green Garbage Bags
White Garbage Bags
Body Wash
If you ever needed proof that the early 70s were a special time in filmmaking history, look no further.
