Most decades within the 20th century have something for which they are best known. For example: the 1920s were known for prohibition; the 1950s saw the rise of television as a means of mass communication and entertainment; and the 1970s had, well, disco. But the closer you get to the present, the more things seem to kind of blur together. The final decade of the century perhaps isn’t far enough away from us to have any significant stand-out trend. And maybe it never will. If we could pick, however, we’d probably say that what the 1990s had was cinema.
