"A lasting work of art!
Superlatives are dangerous, but sometimes hard to resist. George Lucas's American Graffiti is easily the best movie [of 1973]. Beyond that, I think it is the most impotant American movie since Five Easy Pieces-maybe since Bonnie and Clyde. The special excitement of the film is that it takes us beyond nostalgia-into a rediscovery of the past and of memories that might have been lost forever. American Graffiti is like going home; it's a primal experience!"
-Stephen Farber, The (Sunday) New York Times

"A very good movie, funny, tough, unsentimental!"
-Roger Greenspun, The New York Times

"A masterfully executed and profoundly affecting movie!"
-The Los Angeles Times

**** An altogether endearing movie that turns back the clock to an age of sublime innocence. Warm, funny, and poignant, a richly entertaining movie guaranteed to please nearly everyone!"
-Kathleen Carroll, New York Daily News

Of course pretty much everyone knows this movie or should know it and the soundtrack that came with it. I have again included a movie poster and record covers below.
