    Surprised to see no mention of Falling Down :huh: That would get my number one slot.


    Edit: Apologies - I see it now at #21! Read that damn list three times and still only noticed it once I'd posted :loco:

    Yeah, a really strong year, especially Jurassic Park, Schindler's List, The Fugitive and MotP. I would also add Searching for Bobby Fischer, The Good Son, The Piano (edit: also Philadelphia), and guilty pleasure Happily Ever After.

    A huge favourite of mine is The Remains of the Day, which came out that year. Hopkins and Thompson have great interactions here. The author of the novel, Kazuo Ishiguro, actually won the 2017 Nobel Prize in litterature.

    If you haven't seen it, I also recommend "My American Uncle", maybe my favorite Resnais film.
