Cinema in the 1960s reflected the decade of fun, fashion, rock 'n' roll, tremendous social changes and transitional cultural values. It was not a good decade for US films, as production declined and foreign films gained tremenduous influence. British cinema in particular flourished as it released a number of films that used a new wave of grim, non-fictional, social realism, dubbed or styled "Kitchen Sink" due to its angry, every-day working-class heroes, frank dialogue, and negative post-war themes. However, countries like Japan, Italy and France also claimed their spots in the forefront of cinema.
