I've always seen it as 1991 until recently. IMDB does this sometimes.

Close-Up.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

yeah i've kinda got into the habit of trusting Imdb, but maybe i shouldn't be so trusting. It was released in Hong Kong in the middle of December 1990, then USA 1991.

If there are any more objections though, then we can maybe move it to 1991. We'll see how it goes

Not an easy decision, but I'm voting Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead.

1990 should be right.

imdb really should inform me when they change their dates, though.

Anyway, I've got it #3 for 1990.

What? No Spaced Invaders or Short Time?

Just kidding. Going with my personal favorite, Trust. Probably not the best, but certainly my favorite.

i'd vote for Paris is Burning if it were an option :) though Trust, Days of Being Wild, and The Match Factory Girl are all nice choices
But I wish the public could, in the midst of its pleasures, see how blatantly it is being spoon-fed, and ask for slightly better dreams.
