This week on the LGM Podcast, Scott, Dave, and myself revisit the year 1999, a year steeped in the deep prehistory of Lawyers, Guns and Money. 1999 has developed a reputation for being one of the finest years in the history of cinema. It is also the year that Dave, Scott, and myself started hanging out and going to movies, so as you can imagine revisiting the list means taking a stroll down memory lane.
We worked from the AV Club’s Best of 1999, but also see the Ringer’s Best 50 list. See also also Brian Raftery’s book on film in 1999 (reviewed here by David Friend). In this first podcast (which, at an hour, is longer than our normal episodes) we get to film number fifteen on the AV Club list, Fight Club.
