Nightman’s Top Seventeen Films Of 1993

Greetings, Glancers! We continue my new series of posts which will detail my favourite films of every year since 1950. Why 1950? Why 10? Why anything? Check out my original post here. As with most of these lists the numbering doesn’t really matter much, though in most cases the Number 1 will be my clear favourite. As I know there are plenty of Stats Nerds out there, I’ll add in some bonus crap at the bottom but the main purpose of these posts is to keep things short. So!

So, I couldn’t get twenty but I likewise couldn’t cut it down to ten because most of these films I love equally. There probably won’t be another year like this so bear with me…

17: Falling Down (US/France/UK) Joel Schumacher

16: Mrs Doubtfire (US) Chris Columbus

15: Schindler’s List (US) Steven Spielberg

14: What’s Eating Gilbert Grape (US) Lasse Hallstrom

13: Cliffhanger (US/France/Italy) Renny Harlin

    I’m finding it hard reconciling that Dazed & Confused, Falling Down, True Romance and Tombstone were all the same year despite having seen them all in theatres

      Yeah, a great year, though 94 might top it…

    In my mind Falling Down is way older than Dazed. And Tombstone is older than True Romance… Feels weird that it was all all the same year

      I was only 10 in 93, but I remember a lot of friends’ older brothers having posters of True Romance and Falling Down – I probably didn’t see any of them till a few years later so don’t have the same frame of reference. But it is strange how some films seem older than others.

    Great post 🙂 Interesting ranking there. I would have added Robert Altman’s Short Cuts in there, but then again, I have to keep reminding myself that this is a personal list 🙂 Anyway, keep up the great work as always 🙂

      It’s a long time since I’ve seen that one so I’ll need to go back and revisit
