Magnolia (1999)

My second favorite film of all-time.

Magnolia introduced me to P.T. Anderson, and I've been a devoted fan ever since. The performances are exceptional all around (easily my favorite Tom Cruise performance by the way), each character is fully developed by the end, and there's so much going on throughout the film to both entertain and provoke thought. It's also beautifully shot and carefully put together, with scenes that embed themselves in your head long after it ends.

I could say more, but a search led me to discover that Roger Ebert has said it well enough.

I went to see American Beauty alone the weekend it opened...nobody wanted to go with me. So I was bummed beyond words when it ended & I had no one to discuss its greatness with.

Fight Club (1999)


One of the few movies that's as good as the book it was adapted from.

Go (1999)

Okay. You sit down and read your paper, and you're enjoying your entire two-page comics spread. Right? And then there's the Family fucking Circus, bottom right-hand corner, just waiting to suck.

Bowfinger (1999)

Bowfinger: Do you have any experience in motion pictures?
Jiff: Uh, well, yeah, quite a bit, actually, I have quite a bit of experience. I'm an active, uh, renter at Blockbuster, and I, um, attend the filmed cinema, uh, as much as possible, weekly, bi-weekly, inter-week-... intermediately.
Bowfinger: Would you be willing to cut your hair?
Jiff: [sighs] Oh, yes, but, uh, it's usually better if someone else does it. I've had a few... accidents.

SLC Punk! (1998)
U.S. release date: April 16, 1999


I rest my case on this: in a country of lost souls rebellion comes hard. But in a religiously oppressive city, where half it's population isn't even of that religion, it comes like fire.

Payback (1999)

No, no, it's all right, he's just killing my alligator bags and shooting holes in my suits. Man, that's just MEAN. That's MEAN, man.

Add items to section

Unwatched contenders


Top films listed in the order I like them, though repeat viewings could potentially rearrange said order. And of course the order could be further altered once I watch the "Unwatched contenders".

Runners-up and Unwatched contenders listed alphabetically.

If you'd asked my 1999 self...
1. Magnolia
2. American Beauty
3. Fight Club
4. Go
5. Man on the Moon
6. Office Space
7. Eyes Wide Shut
8. The Sixth Sense
9. Dogma
10. South Park: Bigger Longer and Uncut
11. Payback
12. Sleepy Hollow
13. The Matrix

By 1998, my taste had pretty well solidified. Which means the films listed above earned new places after I experienced the rest of the films on this list, none of which were experienced by me during 1999. I've included the above list just for the sake of reference and so it fits in with the annual lists made before it.

Good to see your #1 film is right where it belongs. Magnolia is almost the type of movie where if someone doesn't like it, I become skeptical of everything else about said person.
Posted: 5 years, 2 months ago at Feb 11 23:36
Agreed!
