1991 in Film

1991 gave me the first cinematic experience of a crowded theater actually yelling at the screen warning the protagonist. We had truly forgotten that we were just watching a movie. We were on the edge of our seats screaming at Jodie Foster; telling here to turn around. It is no wonder that Silence of the Lambs swept the Oscars that year. Aside from the fact that it was a near perfect thriller, it had little competition. It is hard to come up with a top ten for 1991 without including some mindless blockbusters. Of course, the one competitor Lambs did have was Disney in the beginning of its huge come-back. Beauty and the Beast remains the only animated movie nominated for best picture.
