Featuring interviews with such cinematic luminaries as Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, Robert Altman, Peter Bogdanovich, Ellen Burstyn, Julie Christie and Dennis Hopper -- interviewed by today's Ted Demme, Alexander Payne, Neil Labute and Michael DeLuca -- and clips from "Easy Rider," "The French Connection," "M.A.S.H.," "The Godfather," "The Exorcist," "Chinatown" and "Taxi Driver" plus many, many more, "A Decade Under the Influence" examines the dynamics that shaped this influential period in American movie history and laments its fall to the almighty dollar with the opening of the first blockbusters, "Jaws" and "Star Wars." It is a thorough and entertaining document (Bruce Dern does a mean Jack Nicholson impression) that not only will be released theatrically but will be further expanded into a three-part television series on IFC TV, accompanied by a celebration of films from the era. Directed by Ted Demme and Richard LaGravenese. Produced by Richard LaGravenese, Ted Demme, Gini Reticker and Jerry Kupfer. An IFC release. Documentary. Not yet rated. Running time: 108 min.
