Try Jaws, The Warriors and Taxi Driver.

Far Superior IMO

Shall we make our own list and be a little broader than the NFT???

I'll start with some obvious ones...

The Birth of a Nation (1915)
The Jazz Singer (1927)
Citizen Kane (1941)
How To Marry A Millionaire (1953) / The Robe (1953)
Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966)
Bonnie and Clyde (1967)
Jaws (1975)
Heaven's Gate (1980)

Sex, Lies and Videotape - probably the starting point for the modern indie film movement

The Blair Witch Project - first major hit shot on video and one of the first where the Internet played a large part in its marketing

Star Wars should certainly be there too - apart from the obvious reasons, it's one of the first Dolby Stereo films in wide release, and the first real showcase for the format

The Pawnbroker (1964)

The Last Detail (1973)

Deliverance (1973)

All for challenging what was acceptable content in mainstream Hollywood film.

Hardly. For that you have to go back to the Liz Taylor Cleopatra, which unlike Titanic was a flop and when adjusted for inflation remains the most expensive film ever made.

In any case for those who didn't bother to check out the link, the title of NFT season refers to the new wave of American cinema, starting with Easy Rider and lasting till the end of the 70's.

I know 'films that changed Hollywood' can be interpreted in different ways; artistically (Citizen Kane), technologically (The Jazz Singer), financially (Heavens Gate, Jaws) etc.

It can be argued that films made outside of the US did their bit to change Hollywood though couldn't it? Murnau influenced many contemporary directors working in California, as did Bergman; Leone changed the face of the Hollywood western forever, and so on.

The NFT only seem to be considering 'change from within', though... and I thought we were sticking to that criterion

There are so many films in the Part II of the season that I want to see theatrically it hurts me that I'm not a nancy southerner any more... it's hard for me to get down to London that frequently now.

I desperately want to see The Conversation et al. I have friends who would kill to see The Warriors on the big screen. I'll be mentioning that to them.

that's so narrow minded ...

i knew i'd get that response, but there are many films that have been just as influential on hollywood that were on the outside; whether that's foreign films, or films that are outside the studio system ...

Deep Throat? It's not necessarily "Hollywood" as we know it - but it captured the mood of its time and became, uniquely, a porno success in the mainstream. It arguably did for hardcore sex what Bonnie & Clyde did for depictions of extreme violence, as censorious Hollywood started to relax. Deep Throat paved the way for what is now one of the biggest (and most lucrative) sections of Californian film production.
