  1. The Ninth Gate 1999 You end up feeling duped for taking a two-hour-plus ride that dumps you in the middle of nowhere.
  2. Stuart Little 1999 The use of digital effects to create a tiny mouse hero is quite convincing, as are the talking mouths on those cats.
  3. As Good As It Gets 1997 A fairy-tale heartwarmer.
  4. Chasing Amy 1997 The script eventually gets beyond the pop-culture jokes and starts dealing frankly and intelligently with the problems of three people who are defined by their pasts.
  5. Year of the Horse: Neil Young & Crazy Horse Live 1997 If you've ever liked the 52-year-old Young's songs, you'll probably be hooked early on.
  6. Sense and Sensibility 1995 A triumph for Taiwan's most famous director, Ang Lee.
  7. Clerks 1994 At 24, Smith also knows something about casting. Using a mixture of stage actors and novices, he's found the right ensemble tone to make Clerks seem as spontaneous as it needs to be.
  8. Pulp Fiction 1994 The whole is finally greater than the sum of its pulpy parts.
  9. Swimming with Sharks 1994 Kevin Spacey, who is the reason to see the picture, is hilariously ruthless as Buddy Ackerman.
  10. Reservoir Dogs 1992 It's extremely well-acted, written with flair and directed by a 29-year-old first-timer, Quentin Tarantino, who always knows where to put the camera, when to cut to a flashback and how to draw the best work from his brilliant cast.
  11. Supercop (Police Story 3) (Ging chaat goo si 3: Chiu kap ging chaat) 1992 An astonishingly fluid and funny movie that makes most American action pictures seem lethargic.
