The 1960s

Dedicated to my 2014 class on “Film, Politics and the Sixties.”  The decade in which American film broke from Hollywood and became aware of the larger world, which in cinematic terms means the directors represented on the “Auteurs” shelf.  At times—Dr. Strangelove, Bonnie and Clyde, Easy Rider–it wasn’t easy to figure out whether the movies were imitating life or life was imitating the movies.
