Whatever your taste in movies, the filmmakers of the 1990s had it covered. The big studios took advantage of computer-generated imagery to produce spectacular, mega-budget “event” movies like Titanic, The Matrix, and Mission Impossible. A new generation of independents—like Quentin Tarantino and the Coen brothers—were winning accolades with low-tech, low-budget films like Reservoir Dogs and The Big Lebowski. Meanwhile, Spielberg turned to war with Saving Private Ryan, Eastwood breathed new life into the Western with Unforgiven, and the Brits chipped in with The Full Monty and Trainspotting. Despite Hollywood's infatuation with digital, the poster has remained one of the most important means of promoting films. The images in this book represent the crème de la crème of a dazzling decade of filmmaking and graphic art. Tony Nourmand is co-owner of the Reel Poster Gallery in London and a poster consultant to Christie's; Graham Marsh is a designer and art director. Together, they have produced Horror Poster Art and Science Fiction Poster Art, and collections of 20th-century film posters by decade.
