When one is living through a great time in filmmaking, it’s easy to overlook it until it’s gone and we’re stuck with a never-ending cycle of remakes and sequels, and the 90s were just such a period of time as The A.V. Club aptly demonstrates in their list of 50 Best Movies of the 1990s.
Few talk about the ’90s as a filmmaking renaissance on par with the late ’60s and early ’70s, but for many of the film critics at The A.V. Club, it was the decade when we were coming of age as cinephiles and writers, and we remember it with considerable affection. Those ’70s warhorses like Martin Scorsese and Robert Altman posted some of the strongest work of their careers, and an exciting new generation of filmmakers — Quentin Tarantino, Joel and Ethan Coen, Wong Kar-Wai, Olivier Assayas, David Fincher, and Wes Anderson among them — were staking out territory of their own.
