Top 10 1999:

10. The Virgin Suicides
9.  Man on the Moon
8.  The War Zone
7. Ratcatcher
6. The Straight Story
5. Todo Sobre Mi Madre
4. Kukijiro no Natsu
3. Fight Club
2. Eyes Wide Shut
1. Magnolia

Too bad there wasn't room left for: American beauty, Julien Donkey Boy, Being John Malkovich and Boys Don't Cry.

1999 was a very good year for American cinema.

He has no idea what you're talking about, I'm sure.  But don't worry.  He will someday.

Anyway, I may as well contribute to the madness.  Upright, for those sick of the vertigo:[list=1]
  • Magnolia
  • Eyes Wide Shut
  • American Beauty
  • Fight Club
  • South Park: Bigger, Longer, & Uncut
  • Office Space
  • julien donkey-boy
  • The Matrix
  • The Green Mile[/list:o]I can't think of anymore right now.

    Most Overrated: Being John Malkovich (though still good), Boys Don't Cry (really bad), American Movie (just incompetent both in subject matter and approach).

dont be fooled by the big imdb date.  virgin suicides is 2000, everyone.  played a few festivals in 1999, but opened in the us in 2000.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

American Beauty dissapointed me a little when I saw it again lately. Still liked it, but not as much as in 1999.

I think there seems to be a general consensus about some of the top films of 1999...
