The surprising success of Bonnie and Clyde, The Graduate and Easy Rider in the late 60s marks a turning point in the history of the American cinema, as these are films that differ fundamentally from the traditional Hollywood style They revised the traditional genre formulae and overturned the rules of classical narrative structure, but they were also aimed at a young audience influenced by alternative culture, a group that the big studios had ignored until then The American film industry, which was in financial crisis and a phase of artistic stagnation in the sixties because it had tried to meet increasing competition from television by producing blockbusters, started to think again, and became receptive to new ideas This created a degree of artistic scope that young directors and filmmakers with artistic ambitions were not slow to exploit in order to realize their creative ideas in the context of mainstream cinema A period of artistic renewal began, of a kind that had never been possible before in America on such a radical scale.The first wave of New Hollywood was starting to die down in 1971, as the films were often too experimental, too self referential and too alien for a mass audience, and the market for the limited Starget group of a young audience interested in culture was quickly saturated But important stimuli emerged, and made it possible for a series of filmmakers like Robert Altman, Arthur Penn, Mike Nichols, Alan Pakula, Sydney Pollack, Stanley Kubrick, Sam Peckinpah, Paul Mazursky, Hal Ashby and ultimately an exceptional figure like Woody Allen to establish themselves permanently They were joined in the seventies by the younger generation of so called film prodigies like Francis Ford Coppola, Peter Bogdanovich, William Friedkin, Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, Brian De Palma, Paul Schrader or George Lucas They all represented the liberation of the director from the dictates of the studio, the acquisition of a right to have individal artistic handwriting and the era of the director as superstar....

    Endlich ein profundes Buch über die aufregendste Zeit des amerikanischen Kinos auf deutsch (der ebenfalls gelungene Band von Renate Hehr liegt ja nur auf englisch vor). Besonders schön sind die 50 liebevollen Porträts über einzelne Schauspieler, Regisseure und andere. Aber auch in den übrigen Texten erfährt man viel über solche Lieblingsfilme wie „Easy Rider", „Einer flog über das Kuckucksnest", „Bonnie und Clyde", „Nashville", „Apocalypse Now", „Der Pate", „DIe Reifeprüfung" und vieles andere mehr. Hollywood war lange nicht mehr so spannend. Außerdem enthält das Buch noch eine detaillierte Chronik der Kinoereignisse in dieser Zeit und natürlich eine Bibliografie. Zu loben ist auch die edle Gestaltung. Schade nur, dass es keine Farbfotos gibt. Liegt gut in der Hand, das Ganze.
