I would advocate for Days of Heaven from Terrence Malick for those who have not seen it. Visually, it may be Malick's most gorgeous film outside of Tree of Life, which obviously Malick's whole film making gimmick is visual poetry.

I'll throw in Dog Day Afternoon.  The 70's are going to be a bitch.

The 70s will probably be my most represented decade on my ballot (which I completed recently but will turn in closer to the deadline).  Here are the ones I'd really pimp highly that haven't been listed:

3 Women [1977]

Aguirre: The Wrath of God [1972]

Ali: Fear Eats the Soul [1972]

All That Jazz [1979]

Annie Hall [1977]

Badlands [1973]

Barry Lyndon [1975]

Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia [1974]

Chinatown [1974]

A Clockwork Orange [1971]

Cries and Whispers [1972]

The Devils [1971]

The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie [1972]

The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser [1974]

The Exorcist [1973]

F for Fake [1973]

Five Easy Pieces [1970]

Harlan County U.S.A. [1976]

Hearts and Minds [1974]

The Holy Mountain [1973]

The Last Picture Show [1971]

Love and Death [1975]

Manhattan [1979]

McCabe and Mrs. Miller [1971]

The Mirror [1975]

Monty Python and the Holy Grail [1975]

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest [1975]

Salo, or The 120 Days of Sodom [1975]

Solaris [1972]

Stalker [1979]

Stroszek [1977]

Taxi Driver [1976]

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre [1974]

El Topo [1970]

 

I could probably pimp about a 100 more, but I'll give other people the chance to do that.

Unpimped so far:

The Conversation (Coppola, 1974)
The Deer Hunter (Cimino, 1978)

And double pimping Badlands because I almost forgot about it and fuck what a movie.
