I was born in the late Summer of '68 (I was forming while the film was) and I can
honestly say I know very few people my age who appreciate it. Sad but true.

These movies have the same affect on my brother.  (Remember, this is a guy whose initial reaction to Bob le Flambeur was "That guy looks like a bird.")
You know, your brother has something there. Bob le Flambeur does look like a bird.

87 was a weak year for music, but 88 was the absolute nadir. Things picked up in the 90s, of course. And the 80s started strong, just by mid-decade everyone seemed to run out of steam. Unlike the preceding decades, there was no revolution in creativity to recharge everybody (as Psychedelia had done in the 60s, and punk/new wave had done in the 70s).

The 80's was a great decade for college/indie/post-punk/alternative rock. Most say Alternative began in the 90's but it really began in the 60's with The Velvet Underground, Lou Reed's solo career, and David Bowie.

You are absolutely right Kevin. I never understood why people say Alternative began in the 90's. It absolutely did not. A lot of these so called Alternative Bands were influenced heavily by past artists.

Some of the newer punk bands like Greenday are alright, but they're no John Lennons.

I've shown scenes from it to friends at school with generally positive results, not the whole movie though. Some people just don't like old movies.

That's very true.  If it's old, they automatically think it's outdated and boring... same with music..

poor chaps, they cease to realize the error of their ways.

One of my best friends who is otherwise a very intelligent guy will simply not watch a movie that was made more than ten years ago. I mean I showed a scene from "The Wind and the Lion" in Government class and all he could say about it afterwards (because we were doing a debate) was how he wished he could have shown a "boring old movie" during his debate so he wouldn't get so many questions. (He had a reason for being bitter, though - we toasted his ass during the debate!) O0 This guy is a poster-boy for elitist arrogance, BTW, thinking that pretty much everyone except him and apparently all politicians/people in power are morons. . . :P I watched "Spartacus" a couple of weeks ago and Olivier's character reminded me so much of him that it's not even funny.

But hey, we're on a tangent.
