Top 10 Movies of the Year - 1992

1992 - Part 3 of the best 21-part list series you'll ever find. Money back guaranteed. (Proof of purchase required)

#10 - The Crying Game

Directed by: Neil Jordan

Though the second half doesn't quite live up to the promise laid in place by the first half, The Crying Game is still a one-of-a-kind drama with some great moments, and a shocking twist.

#9 - Malcolm X

Directed by: Spike Lee

Featuring Denzel Washington's strongest performance, Malcolm X is a stylistic bio, that manages to succeed despite it's overlong runtime.

#8 - My Cousin Vinny

Directed by: Jonathan Lynn

Joe Pesci, in one of his most entertaining performances, is supported well by a great cast of characters in this hilarious, culture-shock courtroom comedy.

#7 - The Player

Directed by: Robert Altman

Another in a long line of enjoyable Altman ensemble pieces, The Player features a strong cast, great writing, and hilarious insight in Hollywood corruption.

#6 - Unforgiven

Directed by: Clint Eastwood

Featuring some of the best performances of Eastwood, Hackman, and Freeman's careers, Unforgiven feels like a sequel to some of Eastwood's older westerns.

#5 - The Last Of The Mohicans

Directed by: Michael Mann

Though Daniel Day-Lewis delivers an uncharacteristically dull performance, Michael Mann's adaptation of The Last Of The Mohicans is a sweeping epic with beautiful music and wonderful cinematography.

#4 - Scent Of A Woman

Directed by: Martin Brest

This enjoyable, endearing drama features one of Pacino's strongest performances. Not entirely drama, Scent Of A Woman manages to go from comic to tragic without skipping a beat.

#3 - Reservoir Dogs

Directed by: Quentin Tarantino

Taratino's directorial debut, Reservoir Dogs is an intense, bloody crime drama with a great script and perfect casting. Wonderfully sets the tone for Tarantino's career.

#2 - A Few Good Men

Directed by: Rob Reiner

One of the best courtroom dramas ever made, A Few Good Men has an awesome script (supplied by Aaron Sorkin) and great performances from Cruise and a very small, powerful role by Nicholson.

#1 - Glengarry Glen Ross

Directed by: James Foley

It's almost impossible to find a better principal cast in a movie, and unlike other movies with this kind of acting strength, Glengarry Glen Ross doesn't squander it. Great performances and an impeccable script. Hard to beat.
