Planet Carol recommends...

My top 10 movie picks from the late 60's-early 70's

If you haven't seen any of these films in a while, you need to watch them again. They're entertaining, campy, hysterical, horrifying, and amazing. And if you're too young to know what I'm talking about, you don't know what you're missing. Check them out...pronto. All are available on DVD.

Blowup, 1966

The Graduate, 1967

Midnight Cowboy, 1969
(NYC...before Giuliani)

Easy Rider, 1969
(Jack Nicholson's bit is a hoot)

M.A.S.H., 1970
(not the tv series...the movie, with Donald Sutherland, Elliot Gould, and Sally Kellerman)

Harold and Maude, 1971
(quirky suicidal teenager falls for quirky octogenarian concentration camp survivor...hysterical!)

Carnal Knowledge, 1971
(again, Jack is amazing)

A Clockwork Orange, 1971
(...just singing in the rain...)

Deliverance, 1972
(I still get ptss sweats when I hear the phrase, "squeal like a pig")

Slaughterhouse Five, 1972
