The 60’s: Once Upon a Time…

Article Type: 

The 1960s will be remembered as perhaps the most turbulent decade of the century, and 1968 and 1969 are particularly notable. From the sublime (Apollo 11 and the moon landing) to the ridiculous (BBC’s first Monty Python episodes), upheavals in our culture were mirrored in the arts. Quentin Tarantino’s latest movie, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” is both a tribute to this time and to the film industry. With its parallel story involving the Manson cult and Sharon Tate, it shows us the dark side of human nature even as we reached to the stars. Below are some titles that cover this time.
