BFI's 90 Great Films From the 90s

How do you even begin to choose just 90 films to represent an entire decade of cinema?
There's no scientific method applied to the selection process here. It's more a chance for us to highlight some of our favourite films from around the world.
This list of 90s greats could very easily have been at least double the size, but with only 90 spots available, some favourites – both ours and yours – are bound to be missing, the hope being that any frustration at omissions will be juxtaposed with a few new discoveries.
To keep things as varied as possible, we've allowed for only one film per director. Take the ranking with as little or large a pinch of salt as you see fit; every film on this list is terrific as far as we're concerned, and these things are always going to be subjective, with any and all grievances or nods of approval welcome.
