Every decade or so, there is one year in which forever alters how movies are made and seen. The year 1999 was one of those years.
The new book, Best. Movie. Year. Ever.: How 1999 Blew Up the Big Screen, by Brian Raferty breaks down the popular movies of that year and how those movies impacted the industry for decades to come. Movies such as Fight Club, The Matrix, She’s All That, Boys Don’t Cry and The Best Man are just some of the movies were released that year. Containing interviews with actors, directors and others involved in the film making process, this book is the story of the films, the creative teams who made the films and the impact these films have had on the culture over the past twenty years.
This book is a must read for movie fans. It is not only a fun read and a nice behind the scenes look at the films, but it also creates a sense of nostalgia for a year that produced some of our fines movies.
I recommend it.
