    Between the advent of TV in the mid-50's and the summer blockbuster in the 70's Hollywood foundered. If you asked ten people to name a 60's movie, a bunch would say "Easy Rider" which wasn't from a Hollywood studio.

    Noir was dead, westerns withered. They released epics that were mostly silly and RomComs that seemed from a different era (ie. Doris Day). They tried to revive the big musical but those fizzled.
    I am not an authority, but My impression has always been that the 60s were a great era for movies.

    My textbook from the film class I took in college definitely supported the narrative that by the late 50s/early 60s it was time for the Hays Code to go. Noir was dying and Hollywood had gotten stale. Many of the movies mentioned in the above two posts were made by filmmakers who would go on to be better known for being part of the film school generation that came to power in the late 60s and into the 1970s. Films like Bonnie & Clyde, The Graduate, etc were considered ahead of their time and a changing of the guard, so to speak. In no way were they identifiable with Hollywood from the early 1960s...

    If you don't already read Vince Mancini's work on FilmDrunk you are really missing out.

    ‘Captain Phillips’ And The Problem With ‘Based On A True Story’

    I finally caught Captain Phillips on the plane back from Berlin this weekend, at the time not even remembering that it had been nominated for a best picture. In terms of actual insight into the events it portrayed, it rated close to a zero. That is, unless you count Tom Hanks telling his hijacker, “You ah nawt a fishahman anymoah” as a particularly insightful statement (??). Great actor though, that Tom Hanks. Look at him act! Look at him act! I know, right? Such an actor. I assume that’s the only reason this film exists.

    While Phillips is probably a bit worse than some of its faux factual forebears (for one thing, Paul Greengrass’s underexposed shaky cam cinematography doesn’t go great with a tiny headrest screen), it’s basically par for the same course as Lone Survivor, Argo, Parkland, The Iron Lady, etc. You know the type of movie. They purport to portray a real-life event, and you go in expecting some kind of insight, a new perspective, for something to be illuminated somehow, and instead you get a few chunks of things you already know braising in a stew of transparently bull**** embellishments. I know, I know, Argo was mostly a crowd pleaser (not even I could deny the obvious joy of watching Alan Arkin and John Goodman spout vulgar one-liners about old Hollywood), but did anyone actually believe that the Iranian Jeep chasing the departing plane down the runway at the end was something that actually happened in real life? Or that in Lone Survivor, that Marcus Luttrell was saved juuust at the nick of time, when a Taliban literally had his head on the chopping block when the good-guy Pashtuns showed up to save the day? Come on, not even your weird aunt with the email forwards is gullible enough to believe those scenes.

    That's spot on. I can't recall a movie based on actual events that really told the story well. Perhaps this is because "actual events" don't fit well into screenplay writing, real life being far too complex, nuanced and maybe even boring to be explained well in a movie script.

    Yeah, I knew that someone would point out there were some good movies from the 60's. I wasn't really commenting on the quality nor saying there were no hits, although a bunch of those you name weren't typical Hollywood stuff.

    Psycho's a case in point, Hitchcock was Hollywood's Golden Age and he was getting on. Psycho was released in '60 and Hitchcock mostly made crap after that:

    The Birds (1963)
    Marnie (1964)
    Torn Curtain (1966)
    Topaz (1969)
    Frenzy (1972)
    Family Plot (1976)

    I actually just rewatched this movie 3 weeks ago. The acting was a lot worse than I remembered.

    Seabiscuit.

    Walk the Line is the one that bothers me. I think they got the spirit of the man and his relationships pretty correct but they took a less than truthful way of getting there. He was still a rotten SOB after he married June.

    I enjoyed the movie, I just thought some of the acting was worse than I remembered as an 18 year old. Don't really see what is crazy about that. Even Star Wars has some bad acting and I will admit it (huge OT Star Wars fan).

    It wasn't the main characters for the most part, Hartnett was OK, but Orlando Bloom was terrible, I did not really understand the casting of Ewan McGregor (his American accent was flat out bad), and just a lot of the supporting cast who I do not know the names of.

    The action is top-notch though and was a very well made movie. Some of the acting just could have been better.
