Rocky Horror and Die Hard weren't from the 90s.
The entire list is awesome but I think some of the important movies are still missing like Rocky Horror Show, Die Hard. Check out some other great movies genre list here. http://www.moviewatchlist.com/
...What about The Straigh Story (David Linch), The Usual Suspects (Brian Singer) and Pulp Fiction ?? It's strange not to have found at least one of these three movies in your top ten, Marty !!!
It's a wonderful film! :') also, i think it is more of a director's film than anything else, you know? Croenenberg is masterful here, and Scorsese if you read the transcript of the Ebert/Scorsese feature, the first thing he brings up is how a film is made, the directing and the craftmanship here is the first thing i think he loves in a movie, and Crash is a real show off piece for Cronenberg :-D I'm not suggesting you are wrong in not liking the movie (though i do love it, myself), i'm just saying why i personally think it appealed to him so much.
What, no BABE (Noonan, Australia)? "That'll do, pig.. that'll do" Would also include the foreign films KOLYA (Sverak, Czech Rep., Oscar winner), LAMERICA (Amelio, Italy, which made over 150 top 10 lists), and the little known GOODNIGHT MR. TOM (Gold, UK), which features John Thaw's finest performance
I think appreciation for "The Thin Red Line" and "Eyes Wide Shut" has really grown over the years, though "Crash" still remains an underrated cult classic (like much of Cronenberg's work, I guess). Elias Koteas is remarkable in the film, and also in "Thin Red Line". Amazing actor. This is a great list for a decade I think was better than some people give it credit for. Other notable achievements for me include "Dark City", "Miller's Crossing", "Smoke", "Dead Man", "Ronin", "Lost Highway", "Baraka", "The Eel", Woody Allen's "Shadows and Fog" and "Naked". For directorial debuts I like the Wachowskis "Bound", a thrilling B-noir that often gets forgotten because of the film they did next.
I remember when I first saw this list a few years ago I could not understand why The Horse Thief was not on DVD and not mentioned very much on the internet. It was a bit of a wake up call that not all great films are widely available. I am happy to say I have now seen the film thanks to the World Cup! Sadly the quality wasn’t very good, but I’m hoping Mr. Scorsese and the WCF pick that film to restore. I wonder if Mr. Scorsese is just as annoyed as the rest of us when he has to say “Crash….the good version….no not the Oscar winner….its directed by David Cronenberg….no no no the one made in 2004 has Sandra Bullock….this film came out in 1996….”.
