A Decade Under the Influence

"The 70's Films That Changed Everything." A love letter to an amazing period in film, "A Decade Under the Influence" enlists a cast of pioneering directors, writers and actors to talk about the times, their films and their peers. Luminaries such as Francis Ford Coppola, William Friedkin, Sydney Pollack, Julie Christie, and Ellen Burstyn reveal intricate, personal and often untold stories about their experiences, on and off the set. Filmmakers Richard LaGravenese and Ted Demme intersperse these interviews with clips from such classics as "Easy Rider", "Midnight Cowboy", "Taxi Driver", "The Godfather", "Apocalypse Now" and "Coming Home". The result is a celebration of the artists and films.
