The Nineties Revisited: Ep 5

...wherein we come to the end. It's been lovely looking at the nineties in review, and I'm not going to end with a list of my favourite films from the period. That would be boring. Instead, I will highlight the ten best Ensemble Works from the decade. Firstly, remember this list is purely personal. So you may disagree. Secondly, this is not a list of my ten favourite films of the nineties. It's all about the ensemble, those films where you feel every actor is working in tandem with each other. The sort of "You jump, I jump" scenario from the actors. Yes, that one's there.


















So, let me hear your thoughts? Give me your top three casts of that decade? Which of my choices have you reeling? Which makes you happy?

No place for Glengarry Glen Ross? That was the first film that instantly came to mind when I saw your post.

--Silence of the Lambs
--Short Cuts
--Fargo
I agree with Thelma and Louise and American Beauty. Not so much with Titanic....

Shakespeare In Love? Really?

philip i'm wondering about glengarry glenn ross. was not too fond of it, though i like the play. perhaps a second viewing is necessary.

tom all good choices, short cuts came the closest to making it.

joe yes, shakespeare in love. every cast memeber, big and small, gets their moment to shine.

Oh, my bad. I thought it was Best Picture. I totally didn't see that it was Best Cast.
