15 Iconic 1960's Films: Part One

1960s Iconic Films

As many of you know I love film especially classic film. I consider myself a novice cinephile, I don't know half of what I want to know about film but I am always learning. Looking back at the last century I find the most intriguing decade of film to be the 1960's.

So many things changed, not just in the world but in cinema which reflects in many ways the state of the world at large. In 1960's film we saw our first zombie, a black and white married couple, and a black man slap a white man. Oh dear. Perhaps not as shocking as it is today but put yourself in those 1960's heels and imagine living in that decade of change. There was war again, people were fighting for their human rights, inspirational people were being assassinated, people where being murdered for helping people vote. It was just a hot bed of social and human unrest. The 1960's changed us forever.

Although this list doesn't include every single iconic film from the 1960's, it does include most of them. I purposely left out horror/thriller films and will showcase them this October as they will be more season appropriate.
