Some came running for the classics, some for the contemporary, i, for myself, like to consider the 70’s as the new decade when all the possibilities were considered and made, and in a way, the new 20’s. Look real close to this list: experimental and industrial movies run side-by-side with almost no difference, except the one for each director language. And here resides the big distance between the seventies and the posterior times: the importance of textuality (textual ductility). And if you look carefully, you also see 2 (gay) porns: Halsted’s and Poole’s masterpieces, that i would file under “experimental”.
