"The Wicker Man" and "The Last Wave" – favorite movies from the 1970s | pagan, masks, ritual, aboriginal magic

bought a couple of things online last week – a book, and 2 DVDs – 

– i really want to get the book that the movie The Wicker Man was inspired by (Ritual, by British actor and author David Pinner), but this time i got one based on the movie, just curious/ i hope its a good read anyway; and, will still be getting Ritual!

– Two movies are the top of my must have list: "The Wicker Man" – this is the original (1973), not the newer one with Nicolas Cage!; and, Peter Weir's "The Last Wave" (1977) with Richard Chamberlin.


• "The Wicker Man" – a 1973 British mystery horror film directed by Robin Hardy. The screenplay by Anthony Shaffer, inspired by David Pinner's 1967 novel Ritual, centres on the visit of Police Sergeant Neil Howie to the isolated island of Summerisle, in search of a missing girl. Howie, a devout Christian, is appalled to find that the inhabitants of the island have abandoned Christianity and now practise a form of Celtic paganism.

• "The Last Wave" – a 1977 Australian mystery drama film directed by Peter Weir. It is about a white solicitor in Sydney whose seemingly normal life is disrupted after he takes on a murder case and discovers that he shares a strange, mystical connection with the small group of local Australian Aborigines accused of the crime.
