WHat movies do you feel have been the most influential on society and the movie industry. I would also like to know why/ how they were influential.
I’ll start with one of my faves, I feel that “The Manturian Candidate” made a huge impact on how movies were made. It took the suspence and confusion to a higher level than had been done before. Hitchcock did a good job in is way, but the presentation of this film made it difficult to guess where it was going and also the filming techniques used helped to intensify the experience.
For any of you who haven’t seen it I highly reccomend it. (If you have a DVD player, I also suggest you rent the DVD version, it has a great director’s commentary.)
To deal with men by force is as impractical as to deal with nature by persuasion.
