Film Quizzes: Anti-establishment films Part 1

As the wise and serene Dalai Lama XIV once put it: “Know the rules well, so you can break them effectively.” Hollywood is full of characters who don’t care about the repercussions to themselves they cause and the trail of desolation they leave behind. See how well you do in working out the six films below.

  1. Got the first one right away: saw that on a double bill with Patton at a drive-in with my parents. They showed it after Patton because it was okay for the kids to see WAR, but breasts and the F-bomb? They should be asleep by then.

      • It was the summer after it came out, and had been down-rated to “R” from “X”. Yeah, to have them both on the same bill–they are so far apart in terms of what they present, but that was the way drive-ins worked back then.

      • Not really. There were a few times when you’d get a few good movies on a double bill–I remember seeing “Crazy Larry and Dirty Mary” which wasn’t bad, but the followup was the original “Vanishing Point”, which was a fantastic film–but a lot of times you’d end up with a good or so-so movie, with the first one on the bill usually a total stinker. And since it was a summer experience, if it was a hot, humid night, it didn’t make for a great experience, by the time I stopped going in the late 1970’s the drive-ins were pretty much dead.

      • They’re a fun experience. My wife and I try to make it out to the local drive in at least twice every summer. Actually where we saw Brave. 🙂

      • Most of them have, I think, but there are two around us. Both are on a seasonal schedule (I live in Minnesota) and do quite well, especially on weekends. If you want a good space at a weekend show, arriving early is recommended.

        Hard to explain why, precisely; maybe it’s just remaining nostalgia.
