  Sleeper (1973)
Filled with one-liners, Allen's film both satirizes the 1970's and parodies sci-fi books and past classics, such as Buck Rogers "Serial" (1939), Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) and A Clockwork Orange (1971), George Lucas' THX 1138 (1971), George Orwell's futuristic novel 1984, and Aldous Huxley's Brave New World.
The film ends with the famous "sex and death" line: "Sex and death.
One sly cameo is that of Douglas Rain as an evil computer near the end of the film, gently spoofing his role as HAL from 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), and Mike Myers' Austin Powers series owes a debt to this film.

 Dominion: Prequel To The Exorcist Movie Review (2005) from Channel 4 Film
It's not entirely unique for multiple versions of the same film to be made.
The veteran filmmaker, former Scorsese collaborator, writer-director of such films as American Gigolo and Affliction and director of 2002's Auto Focus was effectively brought on as a jobbing director.
The eager anticipation to see the film was probably amped up to unfair levels by the uniqueness of the production saga.

 The Exorcist Movie Review (1973) from Channel 4 Film
The story of the possession of 12-year-old Regan (Blair) was apparently conceived by Blatty as a way of giving something back to society after his run of successes.
Regan's actress mother (Burstyn) may be an agnostic - she may also have unwittingly invited the devil into her home as she is conspicuously a single mother - but the film never doubts for a minute that the path of righteousness lies within an understanding of the Bible.
After seeing this for the first time, you may question whether it is ultimately a masterpiece of profound, mystical significance or largely a work of shallow technical trickery.

American Graffiti -- It's the last, long night of the summer of 1962 and for two recent California grads (Richard Dreyfuss and Ron Howard) jetting away to college in the morning, it's a last chance to taste the innocent fantasies of a teenage world about to be lost, perhaps forever.
Not least of the film's virtues is its rare picture of a man who thoroughly enjoys what he does for a living and even feels a little guilty that he gets paid for it.
There is no commentary, no dialogue, only the natural sounds of the children and their environment.

  Wicker Man Page
The film would concern a battle of ideals between a devoutly-religious Scottish mainland police sergeant and the older pagan beliefs of the locals on a remote Hebridean island.
Filming took 8 weeks in late Autumn 1972 - most of the shooting being done around the film's base of Newton Stewart, Scotland - none of the filming was actually done on an island.
Throughout the late seventies and early eighties the film appeared on the ITV television channel and in various home-video releases, always in its 87 minute version (the British distributors have, until recently, been ignorant of the existence of any longer version, as is the BFI).

  Bright Lights Film Journal | Burroughs, Gysin, Balch, and Cut Ups (1)
This section is intended to delineate a general background to the underground film developments of the 1960s that maintain a concern with structure and consequently the materiality of the medium.
The development of a theory of structural film cannot be dealt with in terms purely related to cinematic developments; rather it is necessary to examine structural film in terms of contemporary problems (and their contexts) within other arts, in the same way that Man Ray’s film approaches can be paralleled with his techniques in photography.
The films produced contain highly sophisticated editing techniques and documenting the “materialaktions.” These were performance art pieces whereby the human body is treated as the material and action against the body becomes the material for the film.

 Hollywood Gothique: The Exorcist (1973/2000) - Film Review
Of all the footage removed from the film, this is the bit that hurt the most, and its restoration is the most important reason returning to The Exorcist (the spiderwalk notwithstanding).
Back in 1973, leaving Dyer staring in seeming despair down the Hitchcock steps might have fit with the mood of the nation, but only the most cynical critic would insist that this was a more profound or powerful ending.
The impact of this previously unseen image is truly remarkable, and the effect is pumped up even further by the gradual revelation of yet another near-subliminal image, a faintly discernable silhouette of the statue of the demon Pazuzu, glimpsed in the shadowy darkness of Regan’s room as her mother looks in the door.

 Amarcord / Amarcord / Federico Fellini / 1973 / film review   (Site not responding. Last check: )
An international success on its first release, the film was well-received by the critics and won a brace of awards, not least of which was Fellini’s fourth Oscar in the Best Foreign Film category in 1975.
The film’s title means “I remember” in some local North Italian dialect and this is very much a film about memory, the tricks it can play, how events can become distorted and mingled together.
The film also pokes fun at political ideology — the obviously “fake” ocean liner that is hailed with such enthusiasm before fading away into nothing is an obvious metaphor for Mussolini’s fascism.

 Slant Magazine - Film Review: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
The small tweaks are noticeably distracting: the first person the film's teens-cum-cattle meet at the rest stop is an old hag (not an old geezer) and it's one of the clan's members who gets the wheelchair.
The giddy sexual banter exchanged between the film's teens will have you believe that "men are pigs," and the actual pigs that move freely around the Leatherface abode point to the imminent slaughter of the film's main characters.
Despite its ominous textures (the film was photographed by Daniel C. Pearl, who also shot the original) and the one stand-out set piece inside the Blair slaughterhouse, Nispel's Texas Chainsaw Massacre is as morally inconsequential as the early Wes Craven pictures it frequently engages (The Hills Have Eyes, The People Under the Stairs).

He sat on the stage in front of the screen, legs crossed, smoking a cigarette, and responded to questions in a voice so soft and shy that it was difficult to hear even though he spoke into a microphone.

 Scifilm -- Reviews, FANTASTIC PLANET (1973)
While their early short films are interesting, FANTASTIC PLANET is nothing short of brillant—and was recognized as such at the 1973 Cannes Film Festival when it was nominated for the Golden Palm and awarded the Grand Prix.
The animation and design of this film are as bizarre and surreal as anything I've seen—it has rightly been described as psychedelic.
The resemblance is unfortunate, as it tends to undermine the seriousness of this film at times.

These texts were examined with respect to film genre analysis, structuralism, semiotics, and new media theory.

Each Prelude is a short commentary on film, Canadian film at large and Toronto Film Festival in particular, designed to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the festival.
Set in 1973, the film spotlights a pivotal moment in rock 'n' roll history as it chronicles the sweetly comic coming-of-age story of both a band and a young boy on the rise.

 Day for Night (film) at AllExperts
Often considered one of Truffaut's greatest films, it's regarded by many critics as the definitive film on film-making and was one of the two films directed by Truffaut which featured on Time Magazine's list of 100 best films of the century along with The 400 Blows.
One of the key themes running throughout the film is whether or not movies, for those who make it are more important than life.
The film is known for its many allusions both to film-making and movies themselves.Not surprising since Truffaut started out as a critic who often championed cinema as an art form.

 Song of the South Campaigns - 1972/1973
In 1973, the film was paired up with the Aristocats as a double feature.
Touting a new look which was in stark contrast to the film's previous release in 1956, it was almost as if the movie's identity had started anew, and "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah" was blazoned as the main trigger to people who were still humming a 25-year-old song.
You can play the music from this rollicking film in your theatre during intermissions or try to get play on a local radio station as part of the regular program schedule or inserted in a "golden oldie" section, which many stations use sometime during each week's air time.

 Scorpio / Michael Winner / 1973 / film review   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Despite top notch performances from both actors, the film feels flat and formulaic and has certainly not aged as well as some other notable thrillers of the 1970s.
However, the film’s main Achilles heel is its bland, cliché-laden script, which includes some truly awful dialogue.
Trivia buffs should note that the film’s title is a reference to the star sign of the film’s two lead actors and its director - a hint perhaps that inspiration really was in dangerously short supply.

 U B U W E B : Rene Vienet
Viénet’s’s film is a far lesser creation than any of Debord’s, but still well worth seeing for its consistent use of the situationist technique of détournement — the diversion of already existing cultural elements to new subversive purposes.
Viénet’s film is even funnier, but its humor comes not so much from its satire of an absurd film genre as from its undermining of the spectacle-spectator relation at the heart of an absurd society.
By turning the persuasive power of the medium against itself (characters criticize the plot, their own role in it, and the function of spectacles in general), it constantly counteracts the viewers’ tendency to identify with the cinematic action, reminding them that the real adventure — or lack of it — is in their own lives.

 Robin Hood (1973)
Watching the film 27 years later, I had the same reaction as that night in Charlevoix: It's clearly a delightful film for children, and a total bore for everyone else.
Peter Ustinov, as the Prince, is the only "name" actor in the film, with the always amusing Terry-Thomas (It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World), as the prince's snake lackey, Sir Hiss, coming in a distant second.
The must-skip feature on this disk is a "Deleted Scene" (shown in story-board animation) in which we see an alternate ending for the film, which was aptly dropped from the final version; it's too dark and macabre for a kid's movie, especially a film that is otherwise perfectly suitable for even the youngest viewers.
