Primal Fear (1996)
The 1990s saw a rise of young auteurs, similar to that of the 70s, with filmmakers such as Richard Linklater, David Fincher, Paul Thomas Anderson, Quentin Tarantino, and Sam Mendes coming to fruition. Few decades have produced quite as many masterpieces, as the 90s saw the development of independent cinema for a mainstream audience, as well as an unusually original slate of big budgeted studio films.
When looking back on the great films of the 90s, many of the same titles, such as The Shawshank Redemption, Silence of the Lambs, Fight Club, Schindler's List, or Trainspotting are thrown around, but there were many great films that didn't get the recognition that they deserved. Here are ten great 90s movies you may have missed.
