From what I've read about LulSec's Sony hacks, this is actually pretty damn close to reality.

Agreed. I was thinking more about defining the way people looked, acted, etc. during the 1990's, so I guess I was thinking more from a pop culture standpoint. Probably it did heavily influence people in some places, but not that I noticed in the mainstream USA. Wish it had, I woulda liked the 1990's a lot better...

very much so.

1999 was probably the best year for film in my lifetime:

Fight Club
Magnolia
American Beauty
Office Space
Being John Malkovich
Eyes Wide Shut
South Park : Bigger, Longer, Uncut
Man on The Moon
Election
Detroit Rock City

Just stumbled upon this thread, and I agree it's got to be American Beauty -- content on the surface but deep down yearning for more.

What I will say is that for me the '90s was a halcyon time when everything seemed small and we had no problems yet cinema was dominated by insanity. It's like we needed to escape from our boring normalcy. So everyone on screen was doing drugs, and not just drugs, but herion, they were all gangsters and thieves and porn stars and hit men, violence happened at the drop of a hat, and weird disconnected events all somehow came together.

Two Days in the Valley, Trainspotting, Killing Zoe, Shortcuts, Boggie Nights, Usual Suspects, The Professional, Heat, The Grifters, the Last Seduction, it was the decade of the dirtbag movie, but made funny and unrealistic so that the suburbanite fat happy audience didn't get too depressed.

Hyperrealism.

It's usually thought of as more quintessentially 80s film even though it was released in 1990.
