    READ ☆ Best Movie Year Ever Best Movie Year EverI would have picked the title “The Last Mediocre Year” which is why I don’t get book deals Nevertheless that’s what this book is about after 1999 movies would stop aspiring to be even mediocre and devolve into CGI cartoons for the foreign marketI’m not persuaded that 1999 is better than 1998 Big Lebowski Last Days of Disco Happiness Buffalo 66 etc or 1997 Jackie Brown Chasing Amy Lost Highway Boogie Nights etc or any other year from the ’90s but this book isn’t either and the title is a marketing trick There’s a chapter on the Phantom Menace and a chapter on bad teen movies and for some reason a straight faced

    READ ☆ Best Movie Year Ever Best Movie Year EverThis book was a very entertaining and nostalgic trip down memory lane Raftery certainly provides a robust number of exceptional films that made 1999 a great year for movies examining their importance through the cultural context of the time as well as their lingering influence on films to come in later years Among others this year brought along such classics as Office Space The Sixth Sense Fight Club The Matrix and many It was a year in which some of today's most celebrated directors such as David Fincher Alexander Payne Wes Anderson and David O Russell to name a few started to gain traction even if their work wasn't fully appreciated at the time As a whole the book is very well researched with some great uotes from various people involved in the making of the films cited Raftery is clearly very invested in t

    READ ☆ Best Movie Year Ever Best Movie Year EverBest Movie Year Ever from Brian Raftery makes a very compelling argument for 1999 being one of the best movie year everThe book is broken into chapters that cover one or a few films usually grouped by some common element each Raftery walks a fine line between being too much film business or too much just gossip There is enough behind the scenes narrative to satisfy our curiosity plenty of explanation of how and why each film was made and often almost not made and plenty of contextualization so we can place these films within the larger context of what was happening in the world While the films mentioned are now almost universally known if not appreciated many were not particularly succ

    READ ☆ Best Movie Year Ever Best Movie Year EverYour level of enjoyment will depend on how old you were in 1999 and how much of a pop culture junkie you are now While I enjoyed the nostalgia associated with reliving 1999 through the films that were released in that year I wished the author had delved deeper into the sociopolitical changes of 1999 the shifting priorities of the film industry the rise of digital technology the changes in film viewing and consumption etc the epilogue was actually the most interesting part for me as the author makes comparisons between the films of 2019 and 1999I agree with other goodreads reviewers that Pictures at a Revolution by Mark Harris is a far better example of how to draw inferences of societal and cultural changes through analyzing the films that were made during that time period
