Just for the sake of clarification, I considered the scene to be from when William Munny rides into town to when he leaves.
Rules are simple:
- Choose your favorite scene of a given year. - Be specific as you can be (please name the film, youtube clips are always appreciated) - I won't be a stickler about the difference between scene or sequence. - Release Date Rules: First non-festival release.

My choice is the wedding scene from The Suspended Step Of the Stork, which is probably the greatest scene of the 90s. I have rarely seen a happy occasion, such as a wedding, portrayed in such a bitter and melancholic way. And it's quality filmmaking of the highest caliber. It's a 13 minute scene with no dialogue that has so much to say about the inhumanity of borders and the emotional detachment that originates from emigration and being far away from your loved ones.
Names have power in identity. Others can use names as weapons. Names are a hook that can be used to track you across the planes. Remain nameless, and you shall be safe.
Honourable mentions to Fisher King's Grand Central scene, Hannibal's escape and his first scene in Silence of the Lambs, the end credits in Only Yesterday, the prologue from Beauty and the Beast, Larry Fishburne's monologue in Boyz n the Hood, the final courtroom scene in JFK. My winner:-
