During this time of isolation, we thought you might need some viewing recommendations to help fill the time and take your mind off COVID-19. On this episode of History of the ’90s, host Kathy Kenzora is looking at the last year of the 20th century.

In Part 1 of our movie recommendations, we took a deep dive into movies like the controversial Fight Club, the imaginative Being John Malkovich, the still relevant Election and, of course, the ground-breaking Blair Witch Project.

In Part 2, Kenzora looks at more classics like 10 Things I Hate About You, The Matrix and The Sixth Sense, which all became instant classics and are movies that Brian Raftery, author of Best. Movie. Year. Ever: How 1999 Blew Up the Big Screen, thinks help to make 1999 an incredible year for movies.
