But 1991? The political and cultural climate has changed alot since that time. Hollywood has gotten more vaccuous since then, pandered more to base interests, and ignored the true art of filmmaking, even though it seemed impossible to me in 1991 that they COULD even sink lower. The academy awards are basically a macrocosm of Hollywood gossip and gross sales figures.
If you want to look to good filmmaking you have to turn to festivals nowadays.
