This is a must for every movie-goer worldwide, a brilliant anthology of the movie making of the last decade. It includes short summary of the film, cast & crew credits, competent comments and a truly magnificient PHOTOGRAPHS (!!). But this is a colourful book not only in respect to it's visual qualities. It presents a variety of genres and film-making schools (with the likes of La Reine Margot, My Farewell Concubine, The Full Monty, Trainspotting, Kolya and Black Cat, White Cat any Hollywood sceptic won't be dissapointed). The selection of the movies 90 per cent corresponds my own taste (unfortunately, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Scent of a Woman, The Green Mile, Jude, The Game, Elizabeth are not included).

5.0 out of 5 stars Massive Picture Book 12 Feb 2003
By "emceejunk" - Published on Amazon.com
800 page monster book. 141 flims from 1991 to 2000. It is filled with pictures(in color!) on almost every page. The text for each film is a basic review. Random quotes from the film, random critics quotes, and little inside information fill the rest of the book. Some of the films selected are questionable. Space Cowboys? Where is Dumb and Dumber? No Anime? The majority of these flicks are Hollywood, but some happen to be indies and international based productions. Happiness, Run Lola Run, and Hate to name a few. At times, there are selections that tend to be director favored like Ang Lee, Steven Soderbergh, and David Fincher. Can you blame them, those guys make good movies? What happened to Spike Lee? The film selection overall is great with some making you say "its on your list, but not mine."
Overall; You won't find a better book of its kind for a cheaper price. 800 Pages! PICTURES(Color)! $...! Made in Spain! Did I mention PICTURES?

3.0 out of 5 stars The worst of the series. 13 Mar 2005
By John - Published on Amazon.com
I love these books. Full of great quality pictures, reviews/essays and notes on the text. However, Jurgen Muller's BOOKS OF THE '90s is by far the worst I've read out of the series so far. Whereas the '70s book listed all the iconic films of the 1970s, Movies of the 90s excludes some of the most definitive - such as Reservoir Dogs - and opts for stuff that wasn't even very good. (Such as Crash.)

If this was a list of the iconic films of the '90s such as "Films of the 70s" was, then perhaps including Dumb and Dumber also would have been a smart move. I know this sounds ridiculous, but it's better than many of the mediocre films they include here.

It's not a bad list, it's just missing a lot of titles I'd personally include, making up for their absence with mediocre titles that aren't even very popular.
