While the anti-establishment rebels of 1969's "Easy Rider" were morphing into the nostalgic yuppies of 1983's. "The Big Chill", "Seventies" movies brought us everything from killer sharks, blaxploitation, and teen comedies to haunting views of a divided America at war. Indeed, as Peter Lev persuasively argues in this book, the films of the 1970s constitute a kind of conversation about what American society is and should be - open, diverse, and egalitarian, or stubbornly resistant to change.
