What's the Best Film of the Last 25 Years?

Each Monday, Criticwire surveys film critics to get their response to movie-themed questions. Today, the question is pretty straightforward: What is the best movie of the last 25 years? I didn't have to think about it too long. With honorable mention going to Safe (not the Jason Statham one) and Dogville, I went with Hoop Dreams. (No surprise, really, since it's the only film from the last 25 years to make my Sight & Sound Greatest Films ballot.) My reasons for this pick can be read here, along with other critics' responses.
