#909: Mean Streets and Badlands Turn 50, plus '60s Madness Play-Ins
Coming on the heels of the era-defining “The Godfather” in ’72, the 1973 movie year had a lot to live up to. But if Adam and Josh’s Top 5 of 1973 (02:56) is any indication, it more than delivered. Featuring early-career masterpieces from Terrence Malick, Martin Scorsese and, yes, George Lucas, plus the decade’s most terrifying horror film, influential films from abroad, and so much more, ’73 not only met the standard set a year earlier, but makes a claim as one of the best of the decade. Also on the show, the return of Filmspotting Madness (47:53), which this year has us determining the best film of the ’60s. Then, Adam and Josh share Best of ’73 poll results (01:08:14), before returning to the Top 5 for their final two picks (01:14:18). Time codes may not be precise due to dynamically-inserted ads.
