- 10. Crumb - 1995
A documentary film by Terry Zwigoff - this is one of the best documentary films ever made.
- 9. The City of Lost Children - 1995
This is a French film by French filmmakers Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro that deserves to be put right next to "Star Wars" and "A Clockwork Orange" when it comes to the greatest fantasy films of all time.
- 8. Happiness - 1998
Todd Solondz' is the most original and provocative filmmaker to emerge from the 1990s, and this is his best film.

- 6. GoodFellas - 1990
The best mob film ever made, and Martin Scorsese was the right man for the job.

Quentin Tarantino's masterpiece. I'm sure he won't make a better film than this.
- 4. Beauty and the Beast - 1991
Not just the greatest animated film ever made, but also one of the best musicals of all time.
- 3. The Silence of the Lambs - 1991
This may not be the best film of the decade, but it's certainly the most important.
- 2. Fargo - 1996
This is the most original and influential film of the 1990s.
- 1. Forrest Gump - 1994
Out of all the films I've seen in my life, this one has to be the greatest of them all.
