These lists are completely subjective and the focus is more on my enjoyment than filmmaking quality. Honorable Mentions are films that I like but aren’t at that favorite level. I’ve also included a list of films that I would like to see from this year. So with that all said, here’s a quick glance at my favorite and least favorite films of 1999. This is by no means definitive.
