Off the Beaten Path - Overlooked Films of the 1990s

« back to classes page
Each year over 600 films are shot in this country. Add to that close to 600 in Japan, over 250 in France  and a similar number in the UK, not to mention the significant output from South America and Mexico. Even the most dedicated cinefile will only get to see a mere fraction of this output. This study group attempts to find films from the 1990s that were overlooked, but still deserve to be viewed and discussed. We will look at films from the U.S., along with selections from Brazil, China, France, England, and Argentina. These films share a deep investigation of human emotions and motivation, reveal fully developed characters, and present engaging plots that capture the viewer's attention and engagement. After viewing the film, we will discuss the symbolism, technical aspects, character development, plot structure, and other aspects of each film. These are perfect subjects for cinema-loving OLLI members who enjoy watching in a group setting followed by discussion. Each session will have a three-hour time slot to allow for both viewing and discussion of the film.
