  Iranian Cinema: A Brief Critical History of Iranian Feature Film (1896-1975)
Besides a few documentary films which were made to record the royal ceremonies and a few newsreels of the events, the rest of the film which were exhibited in theaters were imported from Europe, the United States, and Russia.
The film was released in Tehran in April 1948, but because it did not have the glamor of Hollywood films the audience was use to, it did poorly at the box office.
Most of the films imported from elsewhere are usually attempts to copy the Hollywood style and as a result suffer from their status as bastard sons.

Their importance is stressed by the film's opening, which contends that the economic health of the nation is at the cost of miners' lives.
's campaign films, which were made during the actions they depict, the outcome of the miners' strikes was well understood by the time of the film's completion.
However, the film's insistence on allowing ordinary miners, their families and lower-ranking union officials to articulate their views belies this argument.

 How are film endings shaped by their socio-historical context? by Catalin Brylla
Consequently, closed Text films struggle to limit and direct themselves toward the overall resolution, and the narrative discourse is designed to reflect the story and create devices that conclude the film when the narrative is completed.
The film finishes when he not only marries Mary Kate, his beautiful neighbour, but when he is accepted by the people in the village, reconciling with Will, Mary Kate’s brother and overcoming a trauma he had from his time in the United States.
Nowadays, the shift of film studies is away from theorising the audience as a monolithic body of subjects, all sharing the same drives, fears and cultural determinations (Neupert).

 U B U W E B : William S. Burroughs Films
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.

 mise-en-scene
It means, literally, "put in the scene." For film, it has a broader meaning, and refers to almost everything that goes into the composition of the shot, including the composition itself: framing, movement of the camera and characters, lighting, set design and gen eral visual environment, even sound as it helps elaborate the composition.
Perhaps a general rule is that films made in the classical continuity style point of view usher the viewer through the progress of the narrative.
Films that depend on mise-en-scene ask true viewer to pause and examine the compositional spaces of the narrative.

 Maryland Film Festival 2000
The Maryland Film Festival is proud to present the 25th Anniversary screening of the oft over-looked classic, Cooley High.
The film burst onto the film scene in 1975 with a hip Motown soundtrack in the midst of the "blaxpolitation" era of films.
It wasn't an action film like Shaft, Superfly or the films that made Pam Grier famous, Cooley High was a movie that was a teen-based comedic drama with heartfelt emotion starring Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, Glynn Turman and Garrett Morris of Saturday Night Live Fame.

 Film History of the 1970s
Other films that were backed by the studios reflected the tumultuous times, the discontent toward the government, lack of US credibility, and hints of conspiracy paranoia, such as in Alan J. Pakula's post-Watergate film The Parallax View (1974) with Warren Beatty as a muckraking investigator of a Senator's death.
Films made outside the traditional Hollywood mold, with great works of character development, were beginning to win critical praise and bring in tremendous revenues.
The film's tagline or slogan encouraged nostalgia: "Where were you in '62?" Teenage archetypes included the hot-rod loving delinquent (Paul Le Mat), the brainy student (Richard Dreyfuss), the stereotypical class president (Ron Howard), and the nerd (Charles Martin Smith).

 The Film Asylum Review - Death Race 2000 (David Carradine, Sylvester Stallone)
The story is passable (just to recap: Set in the year 2000, the most popular sport ever is a race across the States, killing on the way with different people scoring different bonuses i.e old folk, women, babies) the acting is dire and the cars are laughable.
Apparently in the year 2000, the French are a people that you really don’t want to annoy, although I’m sure that in the year 1975 at least a couple of them would have been a bit miffed when they saw this bit.
I’ll tell you – one of the worst puns in movie history is what it is. Yes, the film was bad, but it was one of those movies that was really enjoyable at the same time.

 One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest (1975)
The mid-70s baby-boomers' counter-culture was ripe for a film dramatizing rebellion and insubordination against oppressive bureaucracy and an insistence upon rights, self-expression, and freedom.
The entire film was shot in sequence, except for the fishing scene (shot last).
The film's unauthorized screenplay (by Lawrence Hauben and Bo Goldman) was restructured and adapted from author Ken Kesey's 1962 popular, best-selling novel of the same name so that it would appeal to contemporary audiences.

 Jaws (1975) - Channel 4 Film review
The film has political undertones - it is marked by a post-Watergate distrust of authority - but also owes a debt in its theme of self and mutual reliance to those twin classic 1950s westerns of contrasting political colours: High Noon and Rio Bravo.
John Williams' great and justly revered score is instantly evocative of the film and its power to terrify, and there are several stand-out shock moments and wonderfully sustained suspense scenes.
But the film's real master stroke - keeping the monster unseen for as long as possible - was, ironically, forced on the production by the refusal of the various mechanical sharks to function on demand.

 dOc DVD Review: F for Fake (1975)
Welles' 1975 essay film about art and fakery, is not the easiest film for newcomers to the director, but its masterful editing and philosophical questioning should help win over a new audience.
Criterion's anamorphic transfer presents the film in its original aspect ratio of 1.66:1, which, at least on a widescreen monitor, shows the film to better effect than the laserdisc release did, which suffered from television overscan.
The film is more than rich enough to stand alone, but the collection of materials gathered here provide valuable illumination of both the artist and his art.

 One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) - Talk - Spout
View trailer With an insane asylum standing in for everyday society, Milos Forman's 1975 film adaptation of Ken Kesey's novel is a comically sharp...
Milos Forman had proven his talent for astute social comedy in such earlier Czech films as Loves of a Blonde (1965) and The Firemen's Ball (1967), and his adept treatment of Cuckoo's Nest's metaphorically loaded conflict fulfilled the promise of an immigrant observer of American culture indicated in his first U.S. feature, Taking Off (1971).
The independently produced film became only the second film in history to sweep all five top Academy Awards, winning Best Picture for producers Saul Zaentz and 31-year-old Michael Douglas, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Screenplay for Lawrence Hauben's and Bo Goldman's adaptation of the Kesey novel.

 Filmi Geek: Sholay (1975)
This 1975 film that is a true classic of Hindi cinema.
The result is a film with a leisurely pace, appropriate to the sweeping backdrop in which the hot sun bakes the desert dry.
But I think Sholay is a perfect entrée to the best that Hindi film has to offer, especially to a Western audience that may be skeptical that song-and-dance has any place in a movie brimming over with guns and criminals and grand themes of violence and vengeance.

His films abound in lovingly precise dialect humor, a near-balletic control of physical comedy, and whirlwind pacing that begins in chaos and ends in sweet lunacy.
But Brooks says he does not believe in chance: his films are the result of meticulous construction, especially in the scriptwriting stage.
He can recall verbatim various scripting and editing sessions on all his films, and gives the impression that -- at least while he's refining his gags and footage into the funniest possible whole -- comedy is no laughing manner.
