Doesn't anyone have any opinions of 1990? I admit that 1990 wasn't a very striking year in the national memory, nor was it cinematically very striking. It's not like the rise of the French New Wave, or the collapse of the Hollywood movie code. But the crop for this year is actually pretty good.

I feel 1990 was very thin year.


Best of the year is *Nikita* (La Femme Nikita) by Luc Besson with Anne Parillaud. It has wonderful overlays of frustration, futility and sense of duty with moments of comedy and tenderness. I will always remember two bathtub scenes.

*Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead* One of my favorite films.

*Like the Clouds, Like the Wind* (Kumo no yoni, kaze no yoni) Very touching in odd way.

*Almost an Angel* Paul Hogan in odd little movie.

*La voce della luna* Fellini's last movie.
