->From the flowing unisex garments, to all the half-naked waifish chicks, to the pointless quoting of Nietzsche, to all the big perms (on men!), to the cornucopia of half-assed stoner ideals, I canít think of a movie [[UnintentionalPeriodPiece more dated in every aspect of its visual design and philosophy]].

->Yes, In case you thought ''{{Film/Anchorman}}'' was a ''parody'' of the seventies, now you know: There was in fact a time when guys could plausibly say in public, 'Let me take you to Loveland"... I also like that they introduce themselves with their Zodiac sign before they even tell you their name. I mean, I know there was a running cliche about the {{Leisure Suit Larry}}s of the world using 'What's your sign?' as a pick-up line, I--I just didn't know [[PoesLaw that was a real thing that actually happened]].

->Now, let me tell you about the time [[Creator/JackNicholson Nicholson]] and I were, like those poor souls in Paris, targeted over a depiction of [[TheProphetMuhammad the Muslim prophet.]] Scary? YOU BET! Did we survive it? [[CrazyAwesome EVANS ALWAYS ESCAPES UNSCATHED.]] 1972. Creator/JaneFonda is the hottest star going, and yours truly had just signed her to a nic ne-picture musical deal. Fonda was high on peyote at the time and into Tunisian mysticism, and she demanded that her first picture be a musical in which she falls in love with Mohamed. And I said, ĎBaby! This wonít play in Kansas!í But she just kept banging on her tamtam and insisting on the pic.\\\

->I was doing nude scenes from the first moment I started doing movies. It was the era. I guess itís even more so now. When I did ''Caligula'' it was Ďshock horror,í Ďtriple X,í Ďonly in porn cinemasí Ė now ''Series/GameOfThrones'' is on at 8 oíclock at night, there it is, it is exactly what I did in ''Caligula''.

->And what better way to say, "''Kiss off'', 1970s!" than by mentioning roller disco. Yes, that mutated hybrid of disco dancing and the jogging/exercise craze, is one of two of the decade's most shameful, embarrassing developments--the other of course being UsefulNotes/JimmyCarter--so its prominence in the appropriately titled ''Roller Disco'', the two-part season opener for ''{{Series/CHiPs}}'', is nothing short of inspired.

->The pressures of a suffocating conformity, the escalating militarism of the Cold War and the sheer, oppressive boredom of mainstream entertainment - along with [[SpannerInTheWorks trickster elements]] like LSD-25- shattered the staid rationalism of the Establishment and opened more Pandora's boxes than you can count.

->...one issue Iíve always had is the Ghost of Christmas yet to come, the Ghost of Christmas Future. No matter the version, he never looks quite right, ranging from a guy with a black sheet over his head (Sim) to a childís first ceramics class experiment ([[Film/TheMuppetChristmasCarol Muppets]]) to an oversized Jawa ([[Creator/PatrickStewart Stewart]]). Itís forever been a pet peeve of mine, that missing piece of the puzzle. Thankfully, after all these years, the puzzle has been solved. And itís been solved due to my witnessing, for the first time ever, a version of ''Literature/AChristmasCarol'' Iíve never seen. Itís called ''An American Christmas Carol'', a 1979 TV movie that may be the most bizarre adaptation in history... Ladies and gentlemen, I proudly present to you this filmís version of the Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come. Or as I like to call him: '''[[GratuitousDiscoSequence THE DISCO PIMP OF CHRISTMAS FUTURE!]]'''"''

->This is the artificial world of 1970s dinner parties where the common man is trying to appear as conservative and as business class as possible by dolloping on the Marie Rose sauce and talking money and politics. It's the era of plastic -- [[StepfordSuburbia coffee makers, Tupperware, fake smiles]] and pretensions of being better than you are.

->[[Music/DavidBowie Bowie's]] last great [[GlamRock glam]] album, ''Diamond Dogs'', came out not two weeks before this story began. 'Rebel Rebel,' Bowie's farewell to the glam era, peaked in the charts during [[{{Recap/DoctorWhoS11E3DeathToTheDaleks}} Death to the Daleks]]. The glam aesthetic that had defined the [[Creator/JonPertwee (Jon) Pertwee]] era was passing by. Always ill-suited for a recession, [[ConspicuousConsumption the over the top gaudiness]] of glam turned bleak rapidly, the distant and detached starmen proving, as we always knew they would, to be egocentric narcissists. In one sense, Pertwee here carries out the course set out for him two seasons earlier -- his very own Rock 'n Roll Suicide...Pertwee is here serving as the sacrificial lamb for a cultural shift. The bourgeois egotism of [[AgentPeacock the action man dandy]] was fine as the last flourishing of psychedelia. But it's past its time, and some new image must arise.

->''Billy Jack'' is probably what you would have gotten if you had a slightly nuttier StevenSeagal start directing films in the early 70′s. The movie had fun action with its titular hero kicking racists in the face and it also had itís Ď[[SoBadItsGood so bad itís funny]]í moments. Director Tom Lauglinís [[AuthorTract extreme political views are on parade]] and it is hard not to laugh at a person who is to the liberals what Tea Partiers are to the conservatives... For example we get Billy Jack pimp slapping Jesus, we get the hippie lie detector (which oddly enough ISNíT [[ObligatoryJoke a bong]]), and even more horrible singing including an ode to Billy Jack.

->''Inherent Vice'' hints that this terraforming project has moved beyond the physical realm, and that ''ďthe ancient forces of greed and fearĒ'' have begun an extensive remodeling on the nationís psychological landscape. The American Dream [[EveryManHasHisPrice has been rezoned]].\\\
That is the beauty (or horror) of all-consuming capitalism, a force that manages to turn the weapons of the opposition [[TheAssimilator back upon themselves.]] All those sixties ideals about peace and love can be harnessed in service of the very establishment against which they rebelled.

->Exploring the painful and tragic passage from the idealism and utopianism of the sixties into the cynicism and paranoia of the seventies, ''Inherent Vice'' looks out at the world with an exhausted anger. There is a sense that the film has simply worn itself watching the gradual erosion of the counter-culture revolution, perverted and exploited by the very forces it sought to overthrow...this conversion and repurposing has extended beyond the land itself. After all, ''{{Film/Chinatown}}'' offered a fairly damning indictment of the system that sought to control and restructure the literal landscape of Los Angeles.

->By the early 60s, Rock n' Roll had been thoroughly defanged, with its stars either marginalized or sidelined; drafting [[Music/ElvisPresley Elvis(h) Presley]] into the Army was a definitive statement of intent on the part of the Establishment. Some rock stars like Music/BuddyHolly and Music/EddieCochran conveniently met very early deaths in plane crashes and automobile accidents, as did ''Rebel Without a Cause star'' (and icon of youthful rebellion) Creator/JamesDean. Inert folksingers like the Kingston Trio and Peter, Paul and Mary were all the rage on campus as was a kind of pseudo-existentialist intellectualism. Creator/AynRand was being pushed by the CIA and other agencies as a modern-day guru, and she gratefully celebrated the modern CEO as [[TotallyRadical the highest expression of Creation]]...But the esoteric and the irrational were not dead, they'd simply been shut out of the conversation by both the dominant consensus and a brow-beaten mass media. Just as it seemed the new Rationalism would triumph for good, counter-cultural energies would explode back into the mainstream and shake the world to its core. The pressures of a suffocating conformity, the escalating militarism of the Cold War and the sheer, oppressive boredom of mainstream entertainment - along with trickster elements like LSD-25- shattered the staid rationalism of the Establishment and opened more Pandora's boxes than you can count.

->In 1974, my junior year in high school, I was student council vice president and a member of the Honor Society. I was a [[THeCheerleader cheerleader]] and had once again come in runner up in the Miss North Myrtle Beach pageant. That summerI'd also been in the Sun Fun pageant but hadn't won that one either. I lost interest in Cary and fell in love with Jimmy Riddle, smoked pot for the first time and made my dramatic debut in our class production of ''A Portrait of Jenny''.
