The Usual Suspects (1995)

Director: Bryan Singer

Starring: Gabriel "Badass" Byrne, Kevin "Badass" Spacey, Kevin "Badass" Pollak, Benicio "Badass" Del "Badass" Toro, Stephen "Cameltoe" Baldwin, Chazz "Badass" palminteri, Pete "Badass" Postlethwait, Dan "Badass" Hedaya

More Info: IMDB

Tagline: Five Criminals . One Line Up . No Coincidence

Plot: A boat has been destroyed, criminals are dead, and the key to this mystery lies with the only survivor and his twisted, convoluted story beginning with five career crooks in a seemingly random police lineup.

My Rating: 10/10

Would I watch it again? Is Tom Cruise gay?

There's not much need to talk about this. I've seen it. You've seen it. Everyone's seen it. It's virtually flawless. The only flaw? Having Stephen Baldwin in the picture but he's at least OK for this and not really that annoying. The story rocks, the pacing is quick and intriguing, the music is great (despite the way-too-similarity to John Williams' theme to MONSIGNOR) and the ending kicked me square in the balls causing me to walk funny for days afterwards. It's fantastic. If you haven't seen it, stop reading now and get it. It's got an amazing cast and it put Spacey on the map, front and center.

Fucking cops.
