Top 10 Movies of 1995

(Updated on February 11, 2012)

1995 was one of the best years for cinema…Period!! Not only were there 7 perfect films, they were 7 of the BEST perfect films. Seven films in every cinephile’s collection. Braveheart won the Best Picture Oscar for 1995, with Apollo 13 nominated right behind it. The most surprising news to me is that Heat and Se7en were not nominated  for Best Picture…a bad oversight by the Academy. But sometimes the best films aren’t appreciated until later. While I would love to pick a single #1 movie for 1995, I just can’t. Heat and Se7en are both in my Top 10 Movies of all time, and I can’t pick one over the other. And to be honest, Braveheart could be #1 as well, making a three-way tie. 1995 was an epic year in film and these 10 films are more than worthy of revisiting or watching for the first time if you haven’t seen them.
