one previously mentioned by me upthread -- i rewatched Light Sleeper, since the version i own is a DVD w/a 1.33:1 aspect ratio versus the 1.85:1 it was filmed in. Looks incredible, and one of those films i try to recommend to ppl a lot as a great moody '90s noir and a cut above most if not all others in the genre for its really palpable sense of urban desolation and ennui, and the deglamorized emptiness of certain corners of the high-end lifestyle. it's extremely "1992" in fashion and even w/the brooding Michael Been music, which i know turns off a lot of people but for me you just gotta commit to the experience since i think it's a pretty immersive film and one unafraid of a certain awkwardness and naked emotionality, and that includes the music. The performances are all good to incredible, w/Dafoe and Sarandon falling into the latter camp, as well as some really remarkable supporting work in a couple small key roles from Jane Adams and Victor Garber.
