16. Girl, Interrupted (1999)

14. Pushing Tin (1999)
Directed by: Mike Newell
Nick Falzone (John Cusack) is a confident, accomplished air traffic controller whose life is turned
upside down when drifter Russell Bell (Billy Bob Thornton) joins his tight-knit work team and threatens to drive him insane.
Stakes are high and pressure is constant in the world of air traffic control, making the line between excellence and failure
dangerously thin. While jokes provide the team of controllers with an important release from their stressful occupation, a
narrow division exists between teasing and animosity.
Mike Newell's careful research of the air traffic control
profession, including its frequent emotional toll, lends a high level of realism to PUSHING TIN. Newell combines a depiction
of the demandingly precise work done in air traffic control towers with an emotional portrait of the people charged with the
safety of thousands of airline passengers and crew every day. The film also features the charming talents of Cate Blanchett
and Angelina Jolie.

this gritty urban tale which features a good turn by Jolie.

9. George Wallace (1997) Made for TV movie.
Directed by: John Frankenheimer
John Frankenheimer's made-for-television biopic stars Gary
Sinise as controversial politician George Wallace. The film
picks up Wallace's life in the mid-1950s when, as a circuit
court judge and protg of Governor 'Big Jim' Folsom's,
hopes to succeed his mentor in the office. But when he runs
for governor in 1959, his denunciation of the Ku
Kux Klan is
intrumental in his defeat. It spurs a decision to become a
staunch advocate of segregation, a position
that finally wins him the 1963 Alabama gubernatorial race. His opposition to an integrated South continues in the celebrated
"stand in the schoolhouse door" on June 11, 1963, as he tries to block the first two black students attempting to
integrate the University of Alabama. Martin Luther King's Selma to Montgomery march, an effort to end voting-rights discrimination,
leads Wallace to call out state troopers who use tear gas, billy clubs, and fire hoses on the marchers. After failing to get
an amendment to the state constitution allowing him to seek a second term, Wallace supports his wife, Lurleen (Mare Winningham),
to take his place. This surprisingly complex profile of a man justifiably vilified for his opposition to civil rights is driven
home by Sinise's portrayal of the vulnerability beneath the more familiar public face.
