Darker than Amber (1970) - Unfortunately, any synopsis you read spoils the movie, but this is a laid-back PI thriller type of movie that is very of its time, in a good way. I saw a shitty VHS quality version on youtube (taped off the tube decades ago) so it's hard to tell how visually impressive this movie truly is, but it's legit with some great set design like a 1970 cruise ship that is the most late 60s/early 70s thing ever. This has a great fight scene and this contains the best Rod Taylor performance. The pace isn't perfect (though I probably watched an edited for TV version, so who really knows) but it's very much worthy of seeing, at the worst. B-

I highly recommend the Pure Cinema Podcast for any retro movie fans - I think DJ linked it here first. They go insanely deep with 60s/70s titles, some of which I've never even heard of. Hands down, it's the best movie podcast I've listened to, especially if you're looking for new things to discover.

I got a decent DVDr of a TCM screening and it reviewed here http://www.fistful-of-leone.com/forums/index.php?topic=11793.0 But looks like Photobucket fucked up the images
Anyway same review here with un-fucked up screencaps https://noirsville.blogspot.com/2015/12/darker-than-amber-1971-florida-beach.html

JoJo Rabbit, 2019.  Very good, and thought provoking.  Basically the final months of WW2 through the eyes of a dedicated 10 year old Hitler Youth.

Compare to "Tomorrow the World" from 1944, made during wartime, also about a dedicated Hitler Youth.

Thanks, I agree with your thoughts and will post my mini review in that thread. I should have did a search before posting.

The Anderson Tapes (1971) - A heist movie + surveillance thriller of sorts with a unique score by Quincy Jones that's of its time but uses interesting sound design - it's hard to describe. The visuals are on point from Lumet, but this is a classic good movie with bad logic. The surveillance aspect doesn't have any real payoff and the authorities should have busted the heist before it was even pulled off with all the intel they gained earlier in the movie - but it gets ignored. This is Christopher Walken's film debut. C+

Many of the stunts are done in camera, by the way. There is a video with BTS clips on social media right now. Next time I stumble upon it I'll give you the link.
