Reviews of the The Story of Film: An Odyssey New American Independents & the Digital RevolutionWelcome to the world of digital -- bring on "Jurassic Park", "Gladiator", and James Cameron's "Terminator 2" and "Titanic". Cameron, of course, has been pushing the boundaries from day one and keeps at it. Oh, and we cannot forget Pixar, which changed the way we think about animation.
On the other end, we have "Blair Witch Project", which was innovative and low-tech. While today this film is often maligned, it cannot be denied how big of a phenomenon it was and the inspiration it unleashed (unfortunately bringing us the awful horror subgenre of "found footage").
As he often does, Cousins shows a Scorsese clip and compares it to other films. Here, he picks "Goodfellas" and puts it side by side with 1903's "The Great Train Robbery".
But he also praises Tarantino, explaining how "Pulp Fiction" was loaded with dialogue and how "Reservoir Dogs" was inspired by Ringo Lam's "City on Fire", and borrows multiple shots from it. Not to mention the films he wrote but did not direct, like Oliver Stone's "Natural Born Killers".
The Coen Brothers focus on Frank Capra's "little man" in "Hudsucker Proxy" and really took off in the 90s with "Fargo" and "Big Lebowski" (though they had been building their careers strongly since the 1980s.
We find out that Gus Van Sant was inspired by painting, the death of Kurt Cobain, the Columbine massacre and also by video games like "Tomb Raider". What could be more 90s than these things? What about Kevin Smith? If you want to talk about the 1990s, independent film and dialogue, Smith matched Tarantino in many ways (though he takes it in a much different direction).
