Summary "From a veteran culture writer and modern movie expert, a celebration and analysis of the movies of 1999--arguably the most groundbreaking year in American cinematic history"-- Provided by publisher.
Fight Club. The Matrix. Office Space. Election. The Blair Witch Project. The Sixth Sense. Being John Malkovich. Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. These are just some of the landmark titles released in a dizzying movie year, as a group of daring filmmakers and performers pushed cinema to new limits-- and took audiences along for the ride. Raftery provides a definitive account of 1999, a culture-conquering movie year none of us saw coming ... and that we may never see again. -- adapted from jacket.
