Top 10 best movies 1996
253 7.7 7.91. Microcosmos (1996)
922 6.7 6.32. Crash (1996)
Note : When it came out, it was a big scandal. It is quite understandable. For example, to get you in the right mood, it starts with 3 different sex scenes. Now, that's what I call an introduction ! I think the story was really fascinating. No real heros,just really twisted minds with rather sick obessions. The directing is great aswell as the cast.
937 6.8 7.33. The People vs. Larry Flynt (1996)
150 7.1 6.64. The Funeral (1996)
97 7.7 7.85. The Promise (1996)
4033 8 8.26. Trainspotting (1996)
Note : I was really impressed by the second movie directed by Danny Boyle. Great directing, great acting and a very entertaining movie throughout. I think it is really good but not great though. To me, and this is a really personal point of view that you may not share at all, it has an ambivalent attitude towards drugs. Of course, there are some horrible parts shouting "KEEP OFF THE DRUGS" but, in some over scenes, they rather seem to having a grand time. So, very good but not great.
2808 7.8 8.27. Fargo (1996)
Note : A classic movie directed by the Coen Brothers. I have a strange relationship with this movie (actually, I have this feeling with almost all Coen movies...). The first time I watched it , I thought it was great, the second time, it was Ok but not great, the third time, it was great again, the fourth time, ok again.... Weird ain't it ? I guess, it all depends on my mood. Anyway, the directing and acting are great and if you like pitch black humor, you should definitely check this one out.
530 7.5 8.18. Sling Blade (1996)
Note : I was really amazed by Thornton’s directing debut. Indeed, at first, you think it will be about a deranged killer who let loose in the real world and goes back killing some more people but it is much more than that. Indeed, it is one of the most fascinating character study you’ll ever see and not only Thornton’s directing was pretty good, his acting was quite amazing as well.

393 6.4 6.810. Fly Away Home (1996)
