Nightman’s Top Twenty Films Of 1999

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!

Alright, as it was the end of the century/millennium/world, we’ll have one last top twenty instead of 10.

20: The Sixth Sense (US) M Night Shyamalan

19: Girl, Interrupted (US) James Mangold

    I remember seeing Human Traffic, Blair Witch, Iron Giant, Go, Three Kings, eXistenZ, The Matrix, Fight Club, Being John Malkovich and The Sixth Sense in 1999 and thinking ‘This is an amazing year for cinema’

    Great post 🙂 Nevertheless, how come Eyes Wide Shut is not on there? 🙂 Anyway, keep up the great work as always 🙂

      I thought you might notice that 🙂 In terms of quality it should be on there over a lot of the others, but I think it’s far from his best work. I included it in my Top Ten Kubrick films, but I imagine if he had managed to make a few more films it would have dropped off that Top Ten List.

Tell it like it is!
