It was a delicate and complex task that required a fair bit of soul-searching, but we did it: we took a complete list of all movies released in the 1990s around the world and whittled it down to just 144 of our very favorites. These are the movies that define the 90s — a decade when independent cinema went mainstream while big-budget special effects kept Hollywood strongly in the game.
With four to ten pages for each film, this two-volume tribute is an opulent factbook packed full of photos and film stills, as well as cast/crew credits, film summaries, actor and director biographies, and budget and box office vital statistics. Guaranteed to bring you right back to the 90s, you’ll find a hearty celebration of all the films you saw and plenty of reasons to see the ones you missed.
Jürgen Müller has worked as an art critic, a curator, a visiting professor at various universities, and has published extensively on cinema and art history. Currently he holds the chair for art history at the University of Dresden. Müller is the series editor for TASCHEN’s Movies by Decade titles.
“Its balance between text and image is just right, making the book very accessible to pretty much anyone whether they were alive in the 90’s or not. It offers a comprehensive guide to a pretty fantastic decade of film that should not be overlooked.”
