Hi! First of all, can I say that I'm so glad I've stumbled onto your blog. As a film lover, if find it to be an incredibly informative resource. Second, I have a question related to one of your recent posts: Is "American New Wave" an official term for the types of films produced in the 70s? Those are my favorite types of films, and I've always wondered if there was an official term for that era. Thanks! <3
New Hollywood is used most often for that era, but American New Wave is also used because the kind of cinematic revolution that was happening in America at that time was similar to the French New Wave (Nouvelle Vague) and the British New Wave (also sometimes called Angry Young Men/Kitchen Sink Drama), so I like to use both terms.
