If the 70s revival on the Spring 2015 runways has you jonesing for way back when, brace yourselves. You’re about to go HAM on Netflix, thanks to a boatload of 70s fashion movies you can stream for hours on end. Here are our top 11 picks to binge-watch this weekend.
The Conformist (1970):
This political thriller is one of the best arthouse films of all time. Movie wizards will love the trailblazing flashback structure, action junkies will dig the car chases and the sartorial set will go nuts for Stefania Sandrelli
‘s killer wardrobe.

Love Story (1970):
In a nutshell, Love Story
is The Notebook
of the 70s, starring actors Ryan O’Neal
and Ali MacGraw
. The now infamous line “Love means never having to say you’re sorry” may be the silliest thing we ever heard, but the rest of the film is top-notch, including Ali’s collection of collegiate wear.

Detroit 9000 (1973):
In Detroit 9000
two detectives track down stolen fundraiser money. Be sure not to miss June Fairchild
‘s cameo in a gold sequin party dress.

Dirty Mary Crazy Larry (1974):
You haven’t lived until you’ve seen a shaggy-haired Peter Fonda
try to outrun the police in a Canadian tuxedo.

The Great Gatsby (1974):
We know, we know. The Great Gatsby
takes place in the 20s, but it was made in the 70s, so we’re counting it. Who could turn away from a flapper? Or Robert Redford

Chinatown (1974): Faye Dunaway
‘s hat collection in Roman Polanski
‘s neo-noir mystery Chinatown
is as close as it comes to perfection.

3 Women (1977): Robert Altman
‘s 3 Women
