A decade under the influence(History)

What's better than a film that criticizes the Hollywood blockbuster monopoly? Well, one that does it well. This doc does it well.

when Gene Hackman and i come out of the Police station, and I'm pissing and moaning about my wounded hand, and he says, "You dumb Ginny... Never trust a nigger" the audience applauded. And i thought, this is what they knew whitey was thinking anyway, and now someone has finally said it!... It would have been very difficult to put over, even get made, a lot of the films of the seventies, if it wasn't for a prevelant attitude in the country that was receptive to this, cynicism and irony"
~ Roy Scheider, the French Connection 1971
